IMG_2596 copy

FUKUOKA!!! Today I teamed up with local photographer and bud ( Daniel Byron ) and together we hit the streets of Fukuoka. Ranking 12th on the “Most Livable Cities in the World”  list , Fukuoka is full of life and commerce. With everyone dressing to their own personality , there was no shortage looks for us to snap. We also learned a new Japanese English phrase, “Street Style Photography” is commonly known here, on the streets, as “Street Snap” ( a little drop of wisdom Mr. Toyama gave us). So armed with that piece of knowledge we took to the streets ….

Streetstyle bonus : Kampen (Netherlands)

IMG_8540c

From giant plated gold cogs , three mast ships, to windmills Kampen was quite the fun spot. In this tidy little city where everything seem to run at a different speed and sunsets seem to last a little bit longer. Cyclist have priority , actually to not own a bike is strange, and moped riders freely race around town without helmets. And whether your a Heineken fan , love pancakes, or just like local snack food like Freakn’ Ls  or Bitterballs this town is a great place to just relax and really enjoy life.

Paris : Streetstyle

Paris the city of love. This summer I finally had the pleasure of traveling around to some other European cities.  Neither words nor photos can express the atmosphere you become immersed in. But maybe in the combination you glimpse a small piece of the world some call home …
