I hadn’t been to Kyoto, my favorite city, for several years. Most of all I missed the light of Kyoto that paints the river, trees, temples, and streets with a blue-green luster. I took the bullet train down from Tokyo to stay in a guest house and spent three days alone wandering around. Japan still in pandemic, the city felt strangely quiet and empty. I walked randomly around the old city and shot whatever Kyoto seemed to be quietly telling me to take. More than pictures on film these are vignettes discovered by looking.
