Speaking of incorporating people into a landscape, here’s another image I shot at Kinkakuji. Instead of a bunch of foreign tourists, here are tourists of a different kind — first grade elementary school kids. I found out that only first graders wear yellow hats, and I like how the hat color loosely mimics the golden temple.
Photographically and because of my order seeking personality, I like the repeating uniformity of these yellow hats. I was able to raise the Olympus PEN-F way above my head to make this point of view, made easy with the tilting LCD screen and the wide-angle 9-18mm lens.
Notice the pine tree in front of the temple? The “Bonsai Like” closeup was made here with my other Olympus, the OM-D E-M5 Mark II with the considerably longer 14-150mm zoom. One of the benefits of having two fairly compact cameras with me. I can quickly switch cameras, instead of switching lenses.
