Japanese Cemetery in Black and White

By Michael Gakuran | | Photography | 9 Comments |

Sometimes beautiful moments just create themselves. I was composing this shot of a cemetery behind Kiyomizu temple in Kyoto when all of a sudden a man walked out from between the gravestones. The rays of sunlight and harsh shadows cast already made for a neat black and white image, but the a human presence really pulled the other elements together.

This was shot in camera on the E-P1 using the black and white filter.
