Nature, Early Summer, 2018 - Niigata, Japan
It's really hard for me to believe that July is already here.
Summer is flying by, and I've been trying to soak it up, drink it in, and enjoy it as much as possible.
Since my family and I moved out here to the country in rural Japan, nature and natural cycles have become a much bigger part of our lives.
Every day there is so much to notice. To see. And to observe. Life and all of its goings on can be truly fascinating when seen in this new light.
The following video is just a collection of some "random" moments captured outdoors and around the house from this, the first half of summer. I hope you enjoy this little slice of life.
