I have a number of pictures of the city of Nagasaki in the snow. I should probably repost them to Flickr since it’s new and sexy.
Of all of my trips around Kyushu, Nagasaki was both the best and the worst of my experiences. The city is aggressively lovely and photogenic. Every neighborhood calls out to you. If you’re a more serious photographer than I (and you are), you’d be in hog heaven.
The downside is that for a famous city known for being a central point in Japan’s history with the rest of the world, it sure is small and lacking in attractions outside of the (important and interesting) history it provides. Once you’ve seen all the pretty stuff, which you can get done in a day or two, you’re stuck waiting for the malls to open at ten. I had booked myself there for five days. By the third day I was wandering the back streets looking for something to catch my eye.
I’d love to live there, mind you. It seems perfect for that.
Shot with my old Mamiya C220f. I’ll see if I can’t post up the rest of the photos I took with it that week. They were quite nice, in my not-so-humble opinion.
