Late bloomage is kind of like my modus operandi. I didn’t have my first boyfriend until I was 19, I didn’t start traveling seriously until my late 20′s, and I didn’t install the mother of all photo app’s until about three weeks ago while in Japan. Better late than never, I reckon.
After a few minutes of playing, I was in love. Instagram and it’s broad selection of filters transformed my dodgy smartphone pictures into quirky pieces of art. Since I was able to stay connected with my econnect Pocket Wifi, I was uploading like gang busters, sharing my impressions in real time with members of my social networks. Here is a selection of my favorite shots, all taken with my Iphone and revamped a bit with Instagram.
|My first Japanese toilet experience, luckily this one had buttons in English but I still had no idea what was going on|
|One of the first train tickets I bought with no help. Isn’t it cute.|
|A very sobering moment. The first time I saw seperate train cars to protect women from being violated during rush hour|
|That’s fried chicken cartilage, it was goood (said in my Rudy Huxtable voice)|
|The first time I tried on a yukata and realized they provide no ass allowance|
|Strange bunny things all over the place.|
|Creations from my Kyoto cooking class|
|The first time in 9 years it had snowed like that in Kamakura.|
|Boutique Luxury at Hotel Mume in Kyoto|
|The busiest intersection in the world at Shibuya Station, Tokyo|
|Rain can’t stop these commited consumers.|
|Green Tea Kit Kat. Interesting|
Looking at my Instagram photos from my Japan trip make me want to research flights to Osaka so I can go back and witness the cherry blossoms in spring. SIGH! One day, I’ll be back.
