Image by jpmatth
well this is it, the last night before i leave. tomorrow i work until lunch, then ride the train to chicago and leave o’hare sometime around noon the next day. 13 hours later we get to narita international and head off to the first of three hotels.

updates from me will be sporadic or non-existent until i get back on november 3rd. i imagine it’ll take some time to process all the pictures, so my daily shooting practice is now officially on hiatus until the japan pictures are finished.

i’ll have my laptop and cellphone so whenever i can get a wifi signal i’ll be able to read email and check in to a few places, so i should be semi-reachable through normal methods. response times will be delayed though and remember to account for the time zone difference: +14 hours if you’re in illinois.
