Travel Photo: Okukubi River Kayakers and Why I Saved Them
This image came from a series of river photos, taken a few years ago.
Thousands of my images are stored on three external hard drives on my desk.
And, many of them never get developed, until, I decide I need a particular image.
If the urge hits, I dig back through old photo files and, develop one for a certain occasion.
Today, I processed two photos, that have never been seen, anywhere, until today.
One of them, will be published in Stars & Stripes Okinawa newspaper, this week.
This is another version of the image, showing Eco-tourists on the Okukubi River.
The egrets, in flight, just happened to be a bonus, as the image was composed.
The shutter on the camera, clicked a few dozen times.
Camera: Pentax KD10
Lens: Pentax 18-250 at 190MM
Exposure: f/10 1/250 ISO 100
Location: Okukubi River, Kin Town, Okinawa, Japan
Date and Time: DEC 19 2008 10:02AM
Photography and text were mine.
But, the hard part, translation, of the story was done by Mami Sakiyama.
Do me a favor and, hit some social media buttons, for her.
If, I can get away with it, I'll shoot the front page of the Stripes newspaper, later this week !
