There is a river called Oyodo-gawa which runs through Miyakonojo. People go there to relax, to stroll around the green space which surrounds the water, to play with their children, etc. One person especially stood out to me last Saturday as I walked along the river path.
A self proclaimed, funky Ojiisan (Grandpa in Japanese), and very talented drummer was kind enough to let me take his photo while he went about his weekly practice backed by a smooth Jazz soundtrack blaring out of an ipod speaker.
It might be the music, or maybe the clothes but this guy didn’t look a day over 30 to me.

A few new shots taken on the outskirts of town at a local Pachinko Parlour. These places may be noisy, they may be a complete waste of money and time, but there’s just something incredibly photogenic about their fluorescent allure.
Thank you for all the page likes this week and the continued support!
Much more to come, also don’t forget to check out www.duncanfoy.com for more work.
TGIF from Japan!
Here are two rainy day edits to complement the very…very wet weather here in Miyazaki.
Both of these shots are of my good friend Satoshi. He’s one of the first skaters I met since moving to the small town of Miyakonojo where at first I expected there to be little to no skateboarding scene. To my pleasant surprise there is a small group of truly dedicated skaters here. Like the others in this small group (around 10 people) Satoshi literally lives and breathes skateboarding, it’s all he does during his free time. Even though there are barely any skate spots in Miyakonojo, all the skaters here make due with what they have and demonstrate a true love for it. Some of my best memories here have been made with this group and I will never, ever forget them.
