New Site – Check out WWW.SACH.PHOTOGRAPHY! You really should! Finally after months of procrastinating, I finally decided I needed something more photography-savvy to display my photos, so moved onto SmugMug (they are awesome!) and created my own site. However, I have my own TLD, www.sach.photography which is what I’ve used to redirect to SmugMug. Note that there’s no ‘.com’ as ‘photography’ is now a TLD. So ...

Coolest Ride in Town Epic Ride Couple of weeks ago I visited San Diego for a brief vacation. On one day I went to the San Diego Zoo, which had rather impressive reviews everywhere but was a bit disappointed as it was nowhere near good as  they claimed to be. The next day, we headed for the SeaWorld San Diego, and this time I ...

Mind Bending Bend Mind bending Bend In Sri Lanka there’s a place called ‘The 18 Bends’ and it is exactly that; the hillside roads has 18 mind bending… bends. And this is one of them, the 2nd or the 3rd, exactly which I’m not sure.Filed under: Nature, Outdoor Tagged: Bend, Landscape, Mountains, Sri Lanka

Lost in Love Lost in Love This photo took about a month of planning, a few missed opportunities and a whole lot of tries, yet it was all worth it! Absolutely and totally! Let me tell you the back story; I’ve been living in Japan for 7 years now, and for anyone who’s been here that long the Shibuya crossing is something special. ...

Sumo! Last Thursday afternoon, I crossed off another item off my bucket list; I always wanted to go see Sumo, but for one reason or another I somehow never got around to do it. Now with only few days left here, I was running the risk of never doing it, but then my good friend Aurora intervened and took me to ...

Ecstasy Ecstasy My friend Aurora has an obsession with pink. Then, if you’re a photographer and lived long enough in Japan, you develop this fascination with Mt. Fuji. So when we went to the Fuji Shibazakura Matsuri, near Lake Kawaguchiko, Japan, Aurora could hardly contain herself. As you can clearly see!Filed under: Flowers, Nature, Outdoor, People, Spring Tagged: Cool Japan, Flowers, ...

Yokohama: the Lights Yokohama, Japan I probably have mentioned this quite a few times, but let me say it again; Yokohama is one of my most favorite places in Japan to hangout. There’s a lively buzz around any time of the day and night lights are simply breathtaking. So I hardly ever miss an opportunity to go there, with or without a camera. ...

PINK! A Sea of Pink When retouching photos, it is very rarely that you have to decrease color saturation to make it believable. This is one such instance! Last weekend I went to a Shibazakura (芝桜/Phlox) garden in Hitsujiyama, Saitama Prefecture, Japan. Luckily the weather was excellent and the flowers were in full bloom. And when those two were combined, it ...

Aurora Heaven Aurora Heaven Astrophysicist, fellow photographer and good friend Aurora Simionescu has an obsession; pink. So when she was in the Shibazakura garden in Hitsujiyama, Japan, she was really actually in Aurora heaven. And it shows.Filed under: Flowers, Nature, Outdoor, People, Spring Tagged: Aurora, Cool Japan, Flowers, Japan, Nature, Shibazakura

Embracing the Universe Embracing the Universe During the last weekend I headed to the Niijima Island, Japan, for two days of camping with the wonderful folk of the Tokyo Snow Club and it was as good a time as you could have. After unhealthy amounts of food, booze, music and some more, we made a bonfire at the beach and had a great ...

Calm after the Storm Serenity During the cherry peak of the spring cherry blossoms, this place comes to live; people gather round to see Sakura, to picnic under the trees on the floorboards to the left of the picture, and there are continuous festivals. There’s just continuous buzz around. After living here for 7 years you kind of get used to it, although you ...

One Can Tango Too Tango Baby! On my way home from grocery shopping today I was passing by this place where lots of pigeons hangout, and seeing them I thought I’d take a few photos so grabbed the camera as soon as I was home and headed out rightaway. One there, I started shooting a few ‘portraits’, but almost immediately lots of them gathered ...

The Four Seasons This was a photo almost a year in the making; when I took the first of the four photos back in August, it occurred to me that I could in fact not take one, but four, depicting each of the four seasons. The fall went without a problem and a cool looking picture in the bag. Winter was what was ...

Groovin’ Chilling Me Softly Yesterday was fun. Like, TOTALLY! It was one of the best photowalks I’ve ever been to here in Japan, and with good reason. To begin with, I prepared a tad too much and so messed it up completely, just like me; in the morning I plugged in the battery to charge it despite it having more than ...

Dreamland The Perfect Spring Day Believe it or not, this is more or less right in front of my apartment; yes I’m that lucky. This small stream and the road alongside it runs for more than a kilometer long and there are Sakura trees (cherry blossoms ) just like this the whole length. Unfortunately because of work I couldn’t take a ...
