I'm a National Geographic Traveler!


My image of a wagasa, or traditional Japanese paper umbrella, was chosen by National Geographic Traveler's blog, Intelligent Travel, for their Global Eye feature after an editor happened to see it on Flickr. Needless to say, I'm honored!

Check out the website for more excellent images and insight into authentic and sustainable travel.
