Photography: Shima & Minami Ise ・志摩市・南伊勢



I don’t know what it is about the Minami Ise, Shima, Owase region of Mie prefecture but something’s got me fixated. From a photography perspective it’s all I can think about right now.

* Had a problem with the shutter on a few frames but I like the results.

  1. nice! what film are you using sean?


    1. Fuji Provia 100. Sometimes 400.


  2. Happy accidents with the shutter or a kid’s thumb over the lens, shaky hands, etc. I always told the kids I worked with not to delete anything because you never know where your ideas are going to come from and when the photograph is not the end product, that is certainly the case.

  4. I’m getting two LCAs serviced by a bloke in London with a great reputation. Would you be interested in taking one of them off my hands? I’ll probably put it on ebay, but I’ll give you mates rates….. No shutter issues ;-D


      1. A Lomo LCA…. the classic black point and shoot. Lovely little camera, feels great in the hand.

  7. […] around with my Leica and expired slide film photographing anything that interested me (here, here, and here) so it was refreshing to get back to the area and this time try some […]
