Hachiko Cat

It was my first time catching a glimpse of this cat, which is apparently known lately for being seen sitting still at Shibuya's Hachiko statue and other tourist-y parts of the city. My first impression was, "Oh wow, what's a cat doing here?" and "Adorable!" like the thick crowd of photo-takers in front of it.
But it was so cold out, and noisy and bustling with people and cars nearby... a cat's natural instincts wouldn't tell it to stay put in an uncomfortable place like this.
A few minutes after I snapped these photos, a man went up to the cat and made a sound, and the cat immediately leaped onto the man's shoulders and perched there as he walked away, taking the scarf with him.

November Walk

It's been a month since the last "personal" post in this blog, and the colors and light have all changed. Everything is falling and crinkling into crispy golden-brown textures, the dusk coming on faster, the night chillier. Another winter is almost here, and the days speed on, wrapping around me in a blur of holiday music and illuminations twinkling on all over the city. Let's cherish the last few days of fall, before they too drift to the ground and melt away.

Tokyo Family Photography: Red & Yellow Autumn

I first photographed Rocio and Luis's family earlier this year in the spring, and it was wonderful being able to do another seasonal photoshoot for them, especially with baby Montse having just had her first birthday! So friendly and curious, Montse loved gazing all around at her surroundings and interacting with her loving parents. Thank you very much again to Rocio, Luis, and Montse!
