Back to Baltimore

"An airplane soars over Shin-Osaka Station in Japan, Tuesday, Dec. 30, 2008."

The 24-hour travel from Japan back home to Baltimore has begun. I just rolled out of bed Wednesday morning and I am beginning to gather my suitcase and cameras for the long haul home.

My two week journey throughout Kyushu and Honshu in Japan has been amazing and has once again opened my eyes to: new things, new people, new places, and new ideas.

I cannot thank my friends whom live here in Japan for all that they did to help me travel around this great country - whether they acted as a translator, driver or simply a friend. They made my travels much easier and a lot more fun.

While I've only posted a handful of photos, I've shot more than 20 gigabytes worth of images, and about three-hours of high definition video footage. So I'll be sure to post a lot more once I get settled back in the U.S., catch up on life and more importantly, sleep.

Until then, be sure to browse through my posts from the past two weeks if you haven't already since I'll probably not be posting for a couple days once back home. Please note that I'm sure the posts are misspelled and make little-to-no-sense (especially the first couple days here). Rest assure, I'll go back and fix the errors and post up some new stuff sooner rather than later.

Finally, thanks for all those that sent e-mails during my travels, too. See you all back in Baltimore. It's been a great trip.

Patrick, I'm an American living in Tokyo and can really appreciate your photos of Japan. I haven't seen many capture this country so well in photos. You have real talent and I wish you well. I'm sure we'll be enjoying your work for a long time.

I LOVE, LOVE this picture. Oh, the lines! And, of course, the plane (I love planes)! Really, the lines are magnificent & the whole photograph is entrancing. This has to be one of my favorite photographs of all time (and I crawl through many photography blogs on a weekly basis, including Daily Dose of Imagery--which is pretty damn good). I was on the TU website to enroll in a comp sci course, and clicked on the spotlight feature on you on the front page. I was intrigued, so I followed right over to the blog. I'm especially impressed that you're self-taught and started out as a community college transfer. Amazing, natural talent--seriously. You will only get better with time. Any paper would be lucky to have you.
