Here is the fifth in a continuing series of profiles of Kyoto-based photographers. Each photographer chooses five of their favorite pictures from around Kyoto and tells us a little about what those pictures mean to them. This time I asked local photo-blogger Jeffrey Friedl to contribute – and I am so glad that I did! Jeffrey’s pictures are breathtakingly beautiful! Jeffrey says…
Holy cow, it’s not easy too whittle an archive of 90,000 photos down to five! It would have been *so* much easier to come up with my top 500 best Kyoto photos… even 50 would have been difficult… five is just impossible. So, I thought about how to pick, and decided to abandon the idea of picking “good” photos (photos that could stand alone on their own photographic merits), and instead pick photos that illustrated a feeling or place I wanted to share. Even then I had hundreds… Some of my favorite or most popular photos I’ve ever taken didn’t make the cut. Making the selections was a brutal process.
