I'm trying to put together a photo book about my quick trip to Tokyo last week. Since I haven't finished any of the other books I've started, my plan for this one is to keep it super simple – maybe this way I'll make it through the project! With this in mind, I probably won't post very many pages/spreads. . . but here's a sample. I'd appreciate any feedback - is it TOO simple?


Text (opposite page) reads:
Asakusa Kannon, Tokyo’s oldest Buddhist temple
From left: prayer boxes holding fortunes; the five-story pagoda; giant lanterns hanging in the Hozo-mon Gate; guardians of the Asakusa Jinja (a shrine dedicated to the men who found the original Kannon statue); the two Buddhas, adjacent to the temple hall; wooden prayer tablets; a contemporary restaurant in Asakusa, off Nakamise-dori.

Thanks for Looking! : )
