The beauty of travel is that it throws us wide open to the new and unexpected and heightens our senses to textures and colours and sounds that might have otherwise gone unnoticed. On a trip to Japan a few years ago I had a white knuckle taxi ride between the 2 major Tokyo airprots to catch a connecting flight north to Hokaiddo. On a ride that I was sure many times might be my last, the best thing I could do was to distract myself by taking photos of the shimmering neon that was made all the more dazzling by the beating rain. This image is a lasting reminder of a memorable travel story and how beauty can be found everywhere.
