Japan by Julian Chokkattu

I took more than 1,000 photos in Japan, and editing all of them has made me want to go back. It’s a country I have always wanted to visit, even before I attempted to study the language for two years in college (I failed). It’s a beautiful country, with incredible food, and did I mention the almost perfect infrastructure?

Before I start rambling forever, here are the photos you want to see. It starts with Tokyo, then Kyoto, into Nara and Osaka briefly, and then finally back to Tokyo.

Portland, Maine by Julian Chokkattu

I'm still here! I haven't posted since last April, but that's largely because I haven't gone on many long vacations -- that doesn't mean I haven't traveled.

I went to Portland, Maine last summer, and took a lot of photos with a variety of phones for work. Most of them never got published, so I decided I may as well post them now. I did the same late last year with a short trip to San Francisco, so I'll post those photos soon as well.

While I have traveled to other countries since then, the trips have been for work and I've used my phone to take photos more than my DSLR. I put off uploading them to this site, but I realized there's no point in only uploading photos from my DSLR, as smartphones can take excellent photos. I'll be uploading more from these smaller trips soon. I'll be heading to Japan later this year, and I plan to use my DSLR extensively during my trip. 

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Maine -- some are taken with a DSLR. 

Madrid, Spain by Julian Chokkattu

Ms. Chan and I visited Madrid for three days in the first week of March. We spent three days in Barcelona after Mobile World Congress last year, so this year we decided to try Madrid. We stayed at a lovely Airbnb in Lavapies, which was incredibly close to almost everything. 

I edited the photos some time ago, but haven't had a chance to post them. Enjoy!
