Ghost Train

It’s a little disturbing to think about how many of these shots i must have taken… not even sure that they that interesting this wide. Of course, i’ll end up taking more next time i’m back in Tokyo.

It Takes Time

千代田線

Every now and then, i’ll look at one of these kinds of shots as i’m paging through “past glories” and suddenly stop, wondering ‘what on earth… ohhh! clever!’. This was one of those.

Oh, and look at the light that is parallel to the top of the frame. Not a very smart way to try to get things level / square. Live and learn.

Wonderland

Another chance to lax wyrical about the joys of photography in Tokyo. I’ve probably said it all already, but it really was the great photographic city of my life (“so far”, he muttered hopelessly…) The density and craziness of the non-planned sprawl, the completely mind-numbing overload of signs, signals, noise, directions, distractions… it all adds up to a wonderland of alice like proportions.

両国

Was apparently taken in September of 2009, in or around a place labelled ‘両国’ which is now unreadable to me, but looks suspiciously like the area where the sumo happens… just looked it up: Ryougoku, where the sumo happens. How about that.
