Shout out to Andy Rogers and his Kendo Monochrome project

Seize the moment!

Seize the moment!

Andy Rodger, erstwhile Queensland kendoka an current resident of Nagoya has been winning accolades for his photographic efforts documenting Kendo keiko and shiai, including being selected for the Canadian Kendo Federation's annual calendar.

I absolutely love his photos, that capture the dynamism and tradition of Kendo, and would love to have more Australians inspired by the images he is able to capture.

Make sure you check out his Facebook page:

I've been talking with Andy recently and I am trying to encourage him to make the odd contribution to the Budo Blog from Japan, so it is a case of "watch this space"!
