It is through Japanese culture that I have learned to enjoy and actively seek the beauty of green leaves and plants. Midori is the Japanese word for greenery. Before coming across the concept of enjoying "midori", I was more interested in colourful flowers and blossoms. Then, in 2007, while travelling with Japanese colleagues in the UK, I noticed how they would take pictures of moss and other details that I had never paid attention to before. This has opened up an entirely new perspective to me on how to enjoy nature in every season.
This is a selection of "midori" pictures from various domestic and international trips.
