Some nice batting from Monday’s baseball game at Tokyo Stadium. Another good use of my 300mm lens ! :)
Put my 300mm into good use yesterday at the Tokyo Dome. Before the baseball game, a small performance of DJ Kaori and some japanese pom-pom girls. Can’t say we did not appreciate that bit of the show ;-)
Old photographers roaming the streets of Kagurazaka on weekdays.
Colourful outfits on the slopes of Kagura and Naeba !

Not the most distinguished of waiting postures, but quite a popular one in Asia.

Not for the faint of hearts.
He must be at least 90 years old and still dancing !
Summer festivals in Japan : the yukatas are out !
Everyone is on the streets to sell beer and food for the Kagurazaka Matsuri, even the local snacks !
From the 2007 edition of the Tokyo Game Show ! Almost 6 years ago… still cleaning my picture library :)
Enjoying the food, the beer, the music or the service ? Perhaps the combination :) By the way, the silent mode of the 5D Mark III is a nice addition : it allows me to take such snapshots without being noticed.
What’s with old ladies and purple hair ? And this one had to wear a purple T-Shirt :D
Cake shopping in Akihabara.
A stroll in Harajuku is a guarantee for getting nice shots always. Today’s combination : 5D Mark III + 135mm/f2L. Today’s subject : a young Japanese woman wearing kimono posing on a balcony.
From one of our favourite japanese restaurants in Kagurazaka : Ware.
Lucky you : I have setup a gallery dedicated to Booth Babes :-) More images »
The Shi-Shi-Mai (Lion dance) is known to have the power to ward off evil spirits and summon the god off harvest and wealth, bringing prosperity. It is a longstanding tradition in Japan as it brings good luck in the new year.
Something for you Eric ! :D
Sobu-sen during a national holiday : unusually not crowded in the morning. The images a 16-35mm produces never cease to amaze me !
Where else than in Japan could you see this at Disneyland ?!

Coming soon :-)

Very nice bokeh as always with the 135mm/f2.0L !
