Foot Traffic

  • Post-race thoughts on Fort4Fitness
    The air was cool and a chill traveled up my bare legs as I took that step out the door. A pit was in my stomach, churning. I sauntered to the starting point, giving my GPS watch time to find a satellite.

Shooter's Comments:

I have always been interested in different cultures. When I heard about Japanese Saturday School, I decided I had to do a video on the program.

Japanese Saturday School help keep students of Japanese nationals up-to-date academically with their peers in Japan. I was given the opportunity to shoot video while the children were in school.

I also covered the non-Japanese speaking students who were learning to speak Japanese, for various reasons.
