When visiting temples and garden, the subject is not always the famous tourist spot.  Sure, like everyone else, I am always trying my best to capture the beauty of Kyoto’s best and most famous places,  but more and more, as a travel photographer, the people is what attract me most. 

Here a group of Chinese tourists wearing Japanese kimono were taking photos each others all over the beautiful Shosei-en garden. Here, a simple smile allowed me to take this photo.
