The Fan captures a natural faded coloring straight from the camera. The lower portion is a shadow which adds a nice colored texture to the photo I thought.
A Glimpse Underneath captures a different perspective of a lantern in Japan. I often shoot lanterns because they are so fascinating, but I all too often get bored with them as well. So I like to try and photograph lanterns in different ways as much as possible. This was actually a difficult shot to do with regards to framing and keeping my camera still. The location was a bit tricky but I thought it turned out as planned.
