I had ambitious plans to blog every day in Japan and have failed. At the end of the day, it’s all I can do to get our photos downloaded from our cameras and backed up. So I’ve lowered the bar and will post an iPhone photo a day. I have three days of catching up to do.
I’m posting a lot more on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. It’s easy…one post to Instagram goes to all four. My Instagram handle is @hiphotog. On Twitter, it’s @robinscanlon.
Please comment or shoot me an email. It gets lonely out here!

I’ve been making Marc Matsumoto’s tofu and avocado salad. It’s simple and delicious.

But my favorite way to make tofu is pan fried until it’s got a crispy golden crust – like Michael Natkin does. It truly does make tofu “freaking delicious.”

Last night I decided to combine the two using cubed pieces of fried tofu in the avocado salad. Then I added tomatoes…really sweet ripe ones. It was amazing!
