Jet Planes, Bullet Trains and Taxis

Somewhere Over China

I got back last night from a jam-packed week of travel.

My Thanksgiving dinner had hardly digested and I was on a plane bound for China. Left at noon from Newark Liberty International on Saturday, November 26, flew through through the day with Gary S. Chapman, and, 6,803 miles later, landed in Beijing. Only to catch another flight to land, two hours later, in Xian, China, on Sunday evening, November 27.

From there it was a  two-day shoot in Xian, then off to Japan. About 1,768 air miles, but then an hour train ride from Narita International Airport, then  a bullet train (Shinkasen) to the Nagaizumi region. Not sure of the mileage, but at 153 miles per hour, it took about an hour.

Bullet Train From Tokyo To Nagaizumi, Japan

After deboarding at Mishima Station, a short taxi ride to the second of three hotels on this trip.

Nagaizumi Taxi

Another bullet train ride back to Tokyo where I spent about 36 hours, working, seeing some sites, doing an impromptu photo walk, eating good food and being welcomed at every place we went to.

Arrived back home in the Great State of New Jersey last evening. Walked in the door to one happy wife, three happy kids and one tail-wagging puppy. Not a bad homecoming.

Still backing up, editing and generally getting my mind back in work mode today. I’ll be sharing some more thoughts and ideas over the next few posts. It was a great trip, and great to work with Gary.

My Canon and my Fuji will have more to say….
