This was a photo I took in Boston during the Fall Season. I really liked the combination of light, colors, and shadows. It gives the photo a very "moody" feel to it.

Pretty sweet sunset that I saw in Arlington... did a bit of processing to the photo to give it a cool/retro effect (that all the kids are into).

Chaos- Shibuya crossing.

I was inspired by an article on Fast Co Design, which features pictures of popular tourist spots mashed into Monet-like photo collages. I thought I would give this technique a try and apply it to the photos I shot of the Shibuya crossing in Tokyo. I took about 40 images over a 2 minute time period and then superimposed them into semi-transparency. This is the image that came out. I think it is a really good representation of the chaos.

Couldn't really figure out what this sign meant... and why it was on the front of an auto repair shop. Kind of creepy. I would never take my car there.

Graffiti art on lock down.

Another random image from the streets of NYC...

Golden tower.

I went on a day trip to NYC this week and got a chance to walk around the city a bit. One of my favorite things about NYC architecture are the water towers. It's something that's inherently unique to the city.  I just happened to be walking down the street when I noticed that one of the water towers appeared to be glowing. The sun had gotten into a perfect position behind it. Kind of a cool shot.

Enjoying a dim sum brunch with friends in Boston's Chinatown. Yes, that's chicken feet you see in the background (it's legit dim sum).

Not many words to describe this photo... taken as the sun was starting to go down along New Hampshire coastline. I just really liked the colors.

I made a trip to the New Balance distribution center in Lawrence, MA... and it felt like I was walking into some future land. There were mountains of boxes, giant fork lifts cruising around everywhere, and individual shoes flying past my head. It was quite a remarkable site.

A picture I took while eating lunch in St. Martin. If you look to the middle/right of the image, you'll see a little bay with some white water. I went surfing there a couple times. There's also a pretty intense butterfly place just below it.

St Martin is a very beautiful island... you have views like this everywhere you go.

Lonely balloon salesman.

Image I took on the streets of Saigon (had some fun with photoshop). I felt a little sorry for this kid... he managed to find the one empty street corner in Saigon. I almost went over to buy a balloon, but my driver insisted that I stay in the car.

A non-snow related photograph... beautiful sunset along the New Hampshire coast line.

Picture taken on the last warm day of fall... which seems like an eternity ago.

Cruising down Takeshita St in Harajuku. Lots of touristy crap and girls dressed up as dolls and goth princesses. Definitely no other place like it in the world.

Speaking of being like "no other place in the world"... check out the passion they have towards karaoke:

A closer look at the little town of Hirafu in the bottom/center. Picture taken from Mt Niseko... Mt Yotei towers in the background.

Hole in the sky. 

I usually don't take pictures of people skiing (prefer snowboarding). However, I thought this picture came out quite well. It was completely random. I had brought my camera up to the top of Mt Niseko hoping to take a few pictures. It was cloudy, but I wanted to capture some of the terrain. As I got about halfway down the mountain, the sun broke through a patch of clouds... and a skier happened to be cruising by right as the rays of light were shining down in his direction. Pretty cool!

Sepia dreams.

Beautiful view of Mt Yotei... The little village of Hirafu sitting in its shadow.

The neon glow of Tokyo.

I decided to take a little walk around Shibuya on Saturday night. The massive amount of people and the glow from the neon lights made for some beautiful scenes.

Going down?

Looking down from the top of Mt Niseko... a snowboarder prepares himself to make the descent down the steep face. Mt Yotei in background.

Chilling out at my favorite "noodle bar" in Shibuya... right next to ABC Mart (thank you for the recommendation Eric). The ordering process here is very easy... it's done via a vending machine. You put your money in, press a button, get a number, bring it inside to a chef... and within minutes you have delicious noodles. Brilliant!!

Sock it to me baby!

Sampling some of the finest unfiltered sake that Japan has to offer... At a nice little Japanese restaurant (that I think was called Suikoden??) in Hirafu. Great sake and great food.

**Update: Restaurant is actually called A Bu Cha (thank you Cherry & Ada)

Riding giants...

Looking down on Mt Yohei (active volcano) from on top of Mt. Niseko. With views this beautiful, it's hard to pay attention when you're riding.

February 4, 2011

About halfway down Mt. Niseko... looking at Mount Yōtei (羊蹄山) in the background (active volcano... similar in looking to Mt Fuji). As you're coming down the mountain, there are breathtaking views all around you.

Emo snowman in Otaru, Japan...

This guy could definitely get a job working for Urban Outfitters in USA.

February 1 - February 2, 2011

Exhausted at Niseko, Japan.

This is what exhaustion looks like after a day of snowboarding chest deep powder. By the end of the day, I could barely move my legs... but it was totally worth it!!

Looking at some fresh powder lines going down a hill in Niseko. A bit of sun showing through the sky (it had snowed for 3 days straight... there were snow banks bigger than a bus). This was a nice little break in the otherwise cloudy day.
