Weekly Photo Challenge: One Love

Sorry for the delay in posting for this challenge but I’ve been working my way through the thousands of pictures I took during our trip to Japan.  Our first wildlife experience of that trip was with the snow monkeys near Nagano – the ones that frequent the local hot springs to provide some incredible photo opportunities.  We didn’t get the hoped for snow while we were there but the Macques were everywhere and provided us lots to capture.  One of the scenes that everyone looks for is the interactions between the Mothers and the kids – a perfect example of “one love”.  Here is one of my favorites…..

  4. Gorgeous! Did you get to visit the Japanese countryside?

    • Anisa,
      We saw a great deal of the countryside out of trains and vans but didn’t get to spend much time in any one location. We did get a chance to spend a week in and around Kyoto where I had the opportunity to do some street photography of people in the traditional dress (like you are wearing on your “about” page). You’ll be seeing some of those photos here in the future…..

  6. You really captured the essence in this beautiful portrait.
    One of my bucket list trips is to visit the snow monkeys. I understand they hang out near the onsens for relaxing hot springs. Looking forward to seeing more photos.

    • Jackie – Thank you so much! I have lots of photos of them in the hot springs that I will get around to posting here sometime. It is a great place to visit – even though we didn’t get much opportunity to see them in snow, they are always entertaining and photogenic.
