Foreign Friday

Drying Corn
Misawa, Japan
Autumn 1980
When I was in Japan, I took a LOT of photos, and most were taken with a Minolta with interchangeable lens. Sometimes, I took multiple shots of the same subject matter because each perspective tells a different story.

I enjoyed living in rural Japan and seeing the "real" Japan, not just the images on travel brochures.

Many times, we overlook the beauty in our surroundings because we do not change our perspective.


  1. Your photos not only touch my heart, but they have a unique artistic quality. I hope you have these framed. They are sad and beautiful at the same time.

  2. Very true Nancy! Love the fall corncob bunch

  3. Love that first photo. It's amazing, though, how the perspective of the focal point changes as you introduce more background into the picture.

  4. So true! You are an excellent photographer.

  5. Love the corn shocks. But, I have to say, that building looks pretty precariously placed on the ledge. LOL

  6. Nice photos, Nancy. Somehow when I think of Japan, I don't think of corn, so these were particularly interesting to me.

  7. Interesting progression of photos. :)

  8. I love that some of your rural Japan photos could be rural almost anywhere.

  9. I so enjoy your photography - thank you for sharing it with us. I wholeheartedly agree with your perspective on perspective. LOL. I am glad that you took the time to to capture the details of your travels.
