Left Behind

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.

(This image was shot f/7.1, 1/125, ISO 400 using a Canon EOS M5 and a Canon EF-M 22m f/2 STM lens.)

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