A photo-contestsent me flipping back through 2013’s files, for photos that would match the theme: One Day, morning, day, evening, night. Photos named with the time they’re taken.
It was a little difficult to find morning photos – the great majority of festivals I visit take place in the afternoon – but I found a selection of photos from the various places I visited in Kansai last year. Please check them out/take some travel inspiration from them.
