I have a problem with joining tour groups. I’ve accepted the fact that the there’s a schedule and you won’t necessarily have time to dally if something catches you’re interest.
We were part of a day tour in Kyoto last month during my family’s trip to Japan. We were about to enter a temple when I stopped look at something. The rest of my family and the rest of the tour group had entered the temple when I finally turned around.
I had a choice, I could follow or stay outside and just shoot whatever I could find.
I decided to stay behind and shoot.
They say that Japan is a very orderly society. I find that nature as you see it in Japan is no exception.
I saw a small plant growing among the huge roots of a tree. The tree provided it shelter and yet the plant was able to get enough sunlight to flourish.

There are times where it’s better to get left behind by the herd.
