This morning I started my day early. Decided to go develop my film from my second trip to Japan. Honestly I’ve been so busy working on other projects that I haven’t had a chance to go through my content from my second trip to Japan. Actually I’m still working on my content from my first trip….. I’m really horrible at managing my content but its all good because I know when I get around to it, it’ll be a fun post to share.
Something about shooting in film is very fun and exciting. That feeling you get while you wait for the film to get processed and seeing the photos for the first time and going through them remembering the moments, the day, memories I’ve shared with people, to the experience and how I get to do all these things, and being able to bring back these memories home to share.
I’ve never walked so much in my life until I went to Japan. I really enjoyed walking everywhere though because there was always something cool to see. From rare cars hidden or tucked in someone’s driveway, to finding a river that runs through a city full of Koi fishes.
I know that for my second time traveling out of the country I could’ve have gone any where else. I really went to Japan twice this year. But I have my reasons and I know people would question why would anyone do that. We all have our own reasons of why we do things but this is what I wanted to do and I did it. Honestly Car culture is all over the world and I dream of traveling all over the world to capture it, but it has also been my dream to go to Japan since I was in Middle school. The opportunity came and I took it.
Somedays we just relaxed and chilled. Going through photos and videos that we took during our trip and sharing it with each other. Also exploring around the neighborhood and going to the local Convenience stores to grab a quick bite and snack.
This day I was at a train stop waiting for Joel to arrive. While I was waiting I spotted this Kei car which is in this photo and a guy making Pastries out the back of it. It was pretty warm out and he was in the back of his car making these delicious pastries on a stove. You can see him dripping in sweat from how hot it is in the car. Well I waited on Joel and when he got to the train stop I asked him if he wanted to grab some of these pastries. So thats what we did. The man was really nice and asked us where we were from and I said America but from California, Joel said he’s from New Zealand. Also he asked if were here in Japan on a Business trip. We thought that was funny because the way Joel and I were dressed was far from Business attire.
Exploring Shibuya at night.
BAPE is so freaking cool!
HERE’S SOME CAR STUFF!
