People often giggle when they learn that no matter where I am in the world, no matter the reason, I cannot resist an impromptu shoot for Miss Jones. The thought of witnessing something amazing and then not sharing it is enough to make me break into an uneasy sweat. Call it FOMO. Sort of. And when I informed friends that Echo and I still shot on our first little honeymoon getaway, I was met with a laugh, then a concerned stare, then an instruction to "leave. the. camera. home."*
I revel in the fact that I can bring my work anywhere in the world and that even on the rainy streets of Omotesando, Japan my love and I were able to create a fun little juxtaposition between concrete and colour. The walkways and streets were blanketed with open umbrellas which inspired a 'singing in the rain' street moment (more on that to come) and we became instantly mesmerised by the hustle and bustle and flow of the locals, not afraid to wait outside in the pouring rain for a sweet Max Brenner treat.
Echo and I fell in love with Tokyo, opting to stay at a simple apartment through airbnb.com and spending our days meandering through the side streets of what has to be the most orderly, clean and efficient country I have ever been to. There's plenty more to come from our Tokyo trip - including a little diary of our daily travels. Quite frankly I could keep blabbering away about where to go and what to do and what we did but I shall save those juicy details for my next post. Stay tuned.

*For all of you lovely concerned readers, don't worry, Echo and I explored and honeymooned plenty on our own sans camera. ;)
