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.
One of my daughter’s favourite food – actually comes 2nd, just after escargots – suhsis. Luckily we live in Japan, where, to be honest, we can find the best sushis in the world (also some of the worst too).
Cosplay : when Japanese girls have very colourful hair !
To those who were wondering where had the rainy season gone, well, it has come.
Boba Fett spotted in the streets of Tokyo, just the usual ! :)
One day earlier that is. Had the location and time agreed to shoot a beautiful super full moon rising above Tokyo’s skyline. Unfortunately, the clouds have decided to spoil our evening ! So no super full moon for today :(
The renovated Marunouchi Post Office offers an ideal platform to observe Tokyo Station and its Shinkansens !
Peaceful atmosphere in a Temple in Tokyo… Soothing !
Bikes for the whole family, with color coding :)
This is what you can see with a 300mm on the terrace of the Post Office in Marunouchi : plethoras of Shinkansen at Tokyo Station.
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 !
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
