In Iidabashi, for ~10 days every year, a lovely boat ride awaits !
The magic prime in action !
Tokyo Tower and the Mori Tower of Roppongi Hills at night.
Playing with the focus ring, 1cm away from the water.
A few long exposure shots from Hokkaido, trying to frame the Milky Way and Mt Yotei together.
Light pollution sometimes produces nice effects – look at these colors !
Tokyo Daijingu during the rainy season here in Japan. Lovely reflections on the stone floor! I got wet, my camera got wet, but I think it was worth it, what do you think?
Any season in Japan is a photogenic opportunity :)
Soon 8 years in Tokyo but my first night out in Kabukicho, with a Swedish friend !
Great evening at the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo. This is one of the last shot I took. Still quite many to sort but I thought I would give you a small preview :) And yes, an elaborate composition to avoid the need for a model release !
As promised the other day, now a long exposure shot of Tokyo Skytree at night.
I might just like this kind of job : taking nice pictures of nice models :)
Expanding my stock photography portfolio, this time with Olivia :)
And here it is, my favourite observation platform in Tokyo: Bunkyo Civic Center. Not only it offers a great view but also… it does it for free ! :)
Tokyo is blessed with very clear skies nowadays (what a difference compared to the previous city we lived in – Beijing!). This was shot from my favourite observation platform in Tokyo… more on that later :)
Breathtaking view of Mt. Fuji in Autumn. No cloud, no wind, not even too cold : this was my lucky day ! Photographic tip of the day : the closer you stand to the water (very first picture), the clearer the image reflected !
Had to get up at 4:30 to shoot those but it was worth it. Interesting how the lake appears to be boiling when touched by the first rays of light of the day (it was -4C when I shot these). Need to get back in winter, will probably need snow tires though…
Another great lunch !
Because it sits alone in the North West of Tokyo, Sunshine 60 offers a remarkable view of Tokyo, given the right weather conditions that is !
Blue summer skies above Tokyo.
Came across a basket full of Solanum Mammosum at the local flower shop. Ok, I had to look up for the scientific name of the fruit. It’s also known as Nipplefruit, Titty Fruit, Cow’s Udder, Apple of Sodom, and in Japan : Fox Face [wiki].
Another typhoon, another opportunity for some nice shots from my office in Roppongi Hills !
Ladies (perhaps not) and Gentlemen (most likely), I present you the best looking Booth Babes of the 2013 edition of the Tokyo Game Show.
Let’s be honest, what would a Tokyo Game Show, or any show in Japan for that matter, be without its booth babes… ? This is just a short preview, more pictures to come soon from the 2013 edition of the Tokyo Game Show !
Killing time at the airport…
Off the beaten tracks for a drink (or two) in Harmonica Yokocho, west of Tokyo.
One of my pastime during holiday : find the best spot to capture a nice sunset. The problem is – well at least for me it was – how ridiculously late the sun sets in Europe due to a discrepancy between noon and solar noon (roughly two hours in summer). It makes it tough for […]
Some more sights from the countryside in Normandy : golden wheat crops.
Cosplay : when Japanese girls have very colourful hair !
To those who were wondering where had the rainy season gone, well, it has come.
