Choose My Best Instagram Photos – Round 1, Group 36

It’s been a while since the last time I posted some Instagram photos. I’ve actually started adding new photos, but I’m going to stop doing Japan photos soon. These votes are all about Japan photos, so any newer ones from Canada will not be included in these votes.

This time, there was a bit of a theme. A colour theme! You’ll see what I mean. Enjoy these pictures.

The rules are simple. I post 10 of my Instagram photos every few days, and you get to vote on your favourites. It’s multiple choice, so please vote for 2 to 4 photos (3 is ideal). Leave a comment saying why you voted the way you did. The poll comes after the photos.

Here are the photos:

A Familiar View Soon to Be a Memory

One of the schools I work at, my main school, I’ve been teaching for five and a half years. I’ve taken many pictures from that location over the years, especially sunsets. It’s a great view because I have a clear view of Mt. Fuji and the Tanzawa Mountains. Mt. Fuji was out this morning, but when I took this picture, it was no longer visible.

Next week will be my last chance to see this view. I hope I get to see Mt. Fuji from there one last time.

Choose My Best Instagram Photos – Round 1, Group 35

It’s been more than a week since the last group, so here’s the next one. The previous one didn’t get nearly as many votes as usual, so I think it may have gotten lost in some people’s newsfeeds. Please check it out and vote if you haven’t done so.

This next group features some nighttime shots, daytime shots, and even a little experimentation with tilt-shift. I got some interesting results, and I hope you enjoy them.

The rules are simple. I post 10 of my Instagram photos every few days, and you get to vote on your favourites. It’s multiple choice, so please vote for 2 to 4 photos (3 is ideal). Leave a comment saying why you voted the way you did. The poll comes after the photos.

Choose My Best Instagram Photos – Round 1, Group 34

I recently announced that I’ll be closing my daily weather photo blog and will be returning to posting photos on Instagram. That means that there will be more than 62 groups. Sorry. But I’ll only be doing this series for photos I’ve taken in Japan. Anything posted after we’ve moved to Canada will not be included. So, there will be an end!

This time, you get plenty of photos involving the sky. There’s plenty of colour, and one that’s black and white. And yes, even a sunset. You’ll be seeing plenty of those in the future. So, enjoy these photos!

The rules are simple. I post 10 of my Instagram photos every few days, and you get to vote on your favourites. It’s multiple choice, so please vote for 2 to 4 photos (3 is ideal). Leave a comment saying why you voted the way you did. The poll comes after the photos.

Spectacular Mt. Fuji

A sunny day with clear air and a day off for all of us means a long walk to see Mt. Fuji. And that’s what we did. So, I’ll spare you the long-winded things called words and allow you to look at the pictures.

One of the best views in the world, I think. What do you think? Did you enjoy the photos? What other places do you think are perfect for photographing? Let me know in the comments below.

A New Year in Japan – On the Train

The rest of our New Year is with the in-laws. What came next was a train ride. And this is the train we took.

20160101-131043-47443470.jpg

A closer look. It’s a Romance Car. It’s an express train with reserved seats with Odakyu.

20160101-131142-47502443.jpg

On the train, we got a view of Mt. Fuji.

At Shinjuku, we changed trains to the Saikyo Line.

On the train, my daughter fell asleep sitting up.

And in Saitama, we could see Mt. Fuji again. But it’s a bit farther away.

Coming up next is lunch!
