One of my bucket list Japan items was to get some nighttime street photography in Kyoto. The streets come alive after dark! The tourists clear out, locals are busy cleaning up shop, and the lights switch on creating an incandescent glow. We happened to run into this scene as we were calling it quits for the night. Wow, did we get lucky. There was a group of talented photographers setting up this amazing scene and I asked if I could take a few. They were happy to let me squeeze in and get this once in a lifetime shot. Afterwords we exchanged information and chatted for a bit! So cool how photography can bring people together no matter where you are in the world!
