The last couple photos were about the underground culture life in Japan .
This one is a pure example of the how many faces Japan has !
Eiheji is the of the most famous zen temples in the whole world and i catch myself coming back to the place every other year .
Pictures of the monks are not allowed there , but anyone with some common sense can get a sneak photo . Just be respectful , having a camera and think of yourself as a photographer doesn't give you the right to disturb the pace and peace of the place .
If you ever get around Fukui prefecture in Japan ,stop by Eiheji .
You won't regret it .

Last saturday the guys from "Steel Body " had an event here in Kanazawa .
And of course i was there ! Built a DIY white backdrop and got all the cool kids to show up their tattoos .
I had a blast that night and a really bad hangover the next morning .
Thanks Leo and Jun to invite me over and let me do my thing and to all the cool cats that gave me a bit of their time to pose .
About the kid on the pic . I don't think he really believes that "god hate us all" coz he was smiling all the time and was nice to everyone around .

Hi everyone !!!
I was looking through some old slides and negatives other day . God , i can't believe how long had pass without me even touch my archive of films.
Digital is here to stay and i know it . But i really believe that film still have space on the photography world .
I kind feel sorry for someone nowadays who never had the chance of spend hours on the darkroom looking at trays and be amazed when that image you made start to appear on the paper like magic .
If you have a REAL passion about photography and never a chance of shooting film , please do yourself a favor ! Get a point and shoot camera ,load with film and take some photos . I'm sure you will love the feeling of press the shutter and not be sure how it will come out .
So today i decided to upload a film photo i made years a go in Paris ! It's a cliche but is my cliche and i am proud of it !
And i'm am proud to say that i took my Bronica 6x6 full manual without a photometer and my Nikon F5 for a ride ! It's soo good to turn a nob to crank the film or hear the sound of the motor drive advance the film .
Most important ! Have fun !!!!!

Another kind of japanese female .
Forget about geishas or hyper fashion Shibuya girls .
This is the japanese schoolgirl in her environment . Indifferent to the real world around her but deep inside of the internet world on her mobile phone .
Shoot from the hip with my beloved Ricoh GR3 .
