Since my cherry blossom and neighborhood project, I did another assignment in March before finishing the photography class at AAC. I chose to use my flimsy little tripod and spent a few consecutive evenings outside of National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. What a beautifully designed building and I am amazed at how successful this exercise turned out to be. I've learned a lot and this has ignited my interest in both night photography and architecture photography.
While I was there, I thought of an interview on Michael Kenna's Hokkaido project. Of course I'm no where near his caliber but I realized at that moment how much I enjoy shooting things like this and similar to Michael, I can spend a long time, alone, framing the shots, trying different exposures, and experimenting different perspectives. Just being able to explore the serenity of a place with no distractions is already a wonderful experience on its own.
