12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Red lanterns in the streets of Kyoto.
Kyoto is an incredible place. As a photographer, it was overwhelming. Every little place I passed in the small alley-like streets was so photogenic, I wanted to take a picture of every single door, sign, and lantern. The streets were astonishingly immaculate, with no dirt or garbage in sight. It felt like an honor walking those streets and passing by what seemed like exclusive spots that only close family or friends knew about.
