Bob and I are in Denver, CO. We drove from West Yellowstone to Westminster yesterday. Thankfully the weather was nice and the roads were clear. He is playing at a popular Jazz club Nocturne tonight with pianist Dave Hanson and drummer Todd Reid. It is a very special day and the music will be fantastic!!
As I have mentioned, I printed a small amount of my first photo book. My first baby steps. It’s called “雪景 – Sekkei. 空景 – Kukei.” If you are interested, please scroll down.

My photo book “雪景 – Sekkei. 空景 – Kukei.” for sale!
To friends who bought my 2021 calendar, thank you so much for your support! I printed a small amount of my first photo book which are my first baby steps.
About the title. Japanese “Sekkei” means snowscape. “Sekkei” is combination of these words: Yuki (snow) and Kei (scenery, landscape view, scene.) ”Kukei”, I made up this word to go with “Sekkei”. I used a combination of the words: Ku (sky, space) and Kei to title my photos of sky.

So here are my humble works, “Sekkei. Kukei”. (11.5 x 8.5 inch, 22 pages)
