In November 2016, I spent ten days travelling in Japan - my first time in the country, and also my first few days with a new camera, the Fuji X-T2, so naturally it was a great way to test out and bond with the new equipment.

I only took three lenses, the same three I've used for a few years now - 18mm, 35mm, and 56mm, which work out equivalent to 28mm, 50mm and just under 90mm - a classic travelling kit of prime lenses.

The result of the trip is a pair of essays I've posted at the Kage Collective site, Life at 320 Frames Per Second in December, and Life Between Trains more recently in January.

As a collective, we decided that the January issue would be in a wide, landscape format; so I thought, as a teaser here on my own blog, I'd show you the original images as captured at the time - so you get the big picture, so to speak!

I'm really pleased with the work I brought back from that trip - so do visit the Kage Collective as well, and check out both essays there!

And, as a bonus, here are three images that didn't quite fit into the essays, so I haven't published them anywhere before now...
