Usagi in the countryside

Presenting here an unpublished shot from a Usagi Yojimbo photoshoot during the summer of 2017.

The countryside area used to photograph here has sadly been fenced off for housing development. It was a good backdrop while it lasted.

I went through a lot of organisation (even just to take snapshots of an action figure) to get this shoot the way I wanted it. Climbing over gates, getting caked in mud, jeered at by passers by was all worth the effort!

My original Usagi at Sundown is viewable here:

This alternate shot is slightly darker and further into the evening. Usagi looks ready to clang some swords as much in this one. I only wished I brought the Samurai Turtles along, but kept the outing simple.
