Bikes for the whole family, with color coding :)
Too bad the water wasn’t perfectly still.
Almost finished cleaning my picture library : now reached the end of last year. Here the entrance of a temple, ready for the Japanese new year !
This is what you can see with a 300mm on the terrace of the Post Office in Marunouchi : plethoras of Shinkansen at Tokyo Station.
Excellent service as always at my local coffee shop :) Yes it’s a global brand but the level of service is definitely Japanese !
After years of renovation, Tokyo Station has been restored to its former glory. Impressive work but they should have put all the taxis underground and plant a few trees in front.
Let’s try stock photography with my own models :)
Sometime one gets very lucky : rainy day, 135mm in hand and a beautiful temple next to home :) Could not decide which of the two first ones was the best, I like them both and thought you might too.
Took my 135mm lens for a walk under the rain. Love the result… and the best is yet to come !
Colorful contrast in a temple in Tokyo.
Cute japanese car in Tokyo. That’s a Nissan Figaro.
In Edogawaku, you cannot avoid it and it will haunt all your shots : Tokyo Skytree :)
Train heading towards Asakusa, crossing the Sumida river.
Old – some would say vintage – Apple Computer Logo in Akihabara. A good reminder to the fanboys that things are meant to evolve so keep an open mind, always !
Yes, back to Ochanomizu station and its white metallic pillars. In Lightroom, B&W Look 5 is a preset I like. Highlight the shadows a bit, add some grain et voilà !
One of Tokyo’s most iconic spot ! 135mm was a bit long to catch the three tracks (yes, there’s another one), I’ll go back with my 24-70…
Strolling around Kagurazaka with a 50mm lens late at night is always a delight :) And I’m not only referring to the sight captured in the first shot… which by the way I did not manage to focus properly – shaky hands perhaps ? :D
Enjoying sashimis after her shishigosan (753) ceremony :)
Because of François Hollande’s visit to the Institut, I don’t think I have ever seen so many cops in Kagurazaka. Even the locals were wondering : « what is happening ? » they were asking to the policemen. « It’s the French President ! »
Suidobashi’s platform is quite photogenic with all its while pillars.
The weekend has arrived and with it, an opportunity to rest in a peaceful park :)
