Until a few years ago, Takk Bulkingtonhad no interest whatsoever in photography. He described himself as a “man of letters”. His main occupation was literary in nature and he ignored the visual landscape around him most of the time. All that changed a few years ago when he ‘inherited’ his friend’s half-broken Canon Rebel DSLR. One look through the Rebel’s lens was all it took to hook him into photography. He became an outstanding amateur photographer with a keen eye for beautifully composed landscape shots. Takk is currently documenting the landscape of his hometown in Shiga and Kyoto, Japan.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
