our Japan trip-Kyoto

Kyoto was the best part of the trip in so many ways. The landscape, the people, the shrines & temples. It is stunning, all around. It is hard to put into the right words. The food, the warmth, the serene air, the sound of monks chanting. We stayed in the Gion District, which I highly recommend…

  • Aliki - Dear Kate,
    Thank you for sharing this inspiring trip with us. The photos are sumptuous yet delicate – like the houses, gardens, and people. Your brief descriptions are perfect to fill in and guide us on this miraculous tour. I felt I was walking beside you. If you can’t resist sending more, do! I will love it. I hope you don’t mind if I share these with the family.
    Thank you again.

california part three

California was a hard trip (personally) but I realized today that what I got out of it was these images. And it took me longer to edit them than any others; not because it was arduous, but because it was emotional. Traveling is always lovely, and being in an environment that is so different to…
