Back to Itabashi, as wonderful as last year, even without a model… :)
This particular tree in Ueno is very popular due to its pink blossoms.
Any architecture lover should pay Higashi Shinjuku a visit !
Another visit to the Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku. Still providing awesomeness on a large scale ! This time, I had a 35mm lens instead of the 50mm I brought last time. Both nicely complete each other me thinks.
On our way to Shiga-Kogen, a short stop at Jigokudani Monkey Park in Nagano ! This time, alone with a kid, I wanted to travel light and only took my 24-70mm with me. I regretted it as conditions were perfect :(
Kabukicho in the middle of the day offers quite a different picture : here, a fish shop !
Enjoying reading Schtroumpfs :)
Unlike the previous posts might have suggested, there are robots in the robot restaurant… in addition to the scantily clad dancers :) And no, I did have an equal interest in capturing those robots. BUT most of them were just too large to fit in my 50mm lens. Need to go back with a wider […]
First batch of pictures from the Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku : the entrance lobby ! I think it’s safe to say that there’s no other place like that on earth.
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.
Wishing you all a very happy new year 2014 :)
This poor quality picture shot during approach towards Narita, is a blatant demonstration of the sheer size of Mt Fuji : in the foreground, Tokyo with its plethora of what looks like tiny skyscrapers. The small needle in the middle: Skytree !
I might just like this kind of job : taking nice pictures of nice models :)
Japanese Macaques from the Jigokudani Monkey Park in Nagano prefecture, Japan. The Jigokudani Monkey Park (地獄谷野猿公苑) is located in the valley of the Yokoyu-River, in the northern part of the Nagano prefecture. The heavy snowfalls (snow covers the ground for 4 months a year), an elevation of 850 metres, and being only accessible via a […]
Some lovely Christmas Trees on display at Canal City in Fukuoka.
Fujisan as seen from an Airplane flying to Fukuoka, just two days apart. Yes, as you can see, there is some crazy amount of post-processing to boost the details. Yet, it doesn’t look too bad, does it ? I especially like the first one where you can clearly see the Izu Peninsula in the foreground […]
The Normandy American Cemetery is located on a bluff overlooking Omaha Beach (one of the landing beaches of the Normandy Invasion) and the English Channel. It covers 172 acres (70 ha), and contains the remains of 9,387 American military dead, most of whom were killed during the invasion of Normandy and ensuing military operations in […]
No Fujisan today from Tanuki lake, so here is a picture of the culprits : clouds !
Expanding my stock photography portfolio, this time with Olivia :)
At the entrance of a restaurant, Garlic Man (or Woman) greets you – very cute :)
Those clouds look like a Phoenix, don’t they ?
Back in France for a while with more pictures from our summer vacation. This is Étretat, in Normandy. Étretat is best known for its cliffs, including three natural arches and the pointed “needle”. These cliffs and the associated resort beach attracted artists including Eugène Boudin, Gustave Courbet and Claude Monet, and were featured prominently in […]
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…
Somewhere in Normandy, France.
Very relaxed reading pose :D
Another great lunch !
