Mike and I travel a lot. I mean, A LOT.  We spent over 1/3 of the past year on the road. I always bring my camera, and I always take way too many pictures. Sometimes I take my time, trying to get a really great shot, and sometimes I whip my camera out and take a snapshot just to have for memory. Unfortunately, it takes time to go through the photos and edit the ones I like. Some of them I end of being very proud of, and some of them I would rather not share with too many people.

We also travel with others and I let them know I'll share my pictures (I sometimes get annoyed when everyone in your group tries to get the same picture, and you end up wasting time), so I don't delete all the pictures I should.  Then I waste time trying to make every picture look at least decent.

By the time I upload the albums to share, I'm usually pretty sick of looking at them. I just let them be. I'm trying to change that. I'm trying to create a body of work I'm really proud of. I'm now trying to collect the best pictures from every trip and make sure I like the edits.

The first time I've done this is for our recent trip to Japan. Mike and I were in Osaka, Nara, Kyoto and Tokyo for 9 days in early October. These are my favorites from the trip.
