For almost seven centuries, the Age of the Samurai is a period of Japanese history when “those who serve” started as armed supporters of wealthy landowners and became warrior-administrators. The Houston Museum of Natural Science has a great display of Samurai artifacts, including weapons, armor and more. Though not what I would call a large exhibit, the unique items on display are very rare and well worth the visit. The exhibit is runs until September 13, 2015.
Shooting in a museum can be quite challenging. The glass display cases present constant glare problems and the low light dictates the use of a tripod for most cameras. I’ll be posting a few more images in later this week.
