Even the ugliest of houses can hold a bit of beauty !
Finally, spring is definitely here ! :)
Perhaps the only decent looking stray cat of the neighbourhood. Most of them have ears or tail missing due to frequent fights. Countryside cats are a lot classier !
The main temple of Kagurazaka and its blooming trees.
After two unsuccessful tries, I finally had a chance to try the recently opened Standing Sushi Bar in Kagurazaka. There are many good restaurants in Kagurazaka but a good and reasonably priced sushiya was missing… till now. This place is good, really good !
We have been there dozens of times so it was about time to shoot a small video. I apologise in advance for the background music : at one point, there’s some Céline Dion !
Restaurants come and go in Kagurazaka but if a new Sushi Place opens, it attracts a lot of people. A lot more than usual for other openings. Even Salary men venture outside Ramen & Tonkatsu to bite some raw fish laid on rice ! Truth is, I too wanted to try this new place but ...
Thanks to my friend, I was able to play with a Sony RX1 a little bit, so here is a short review of the Sony RX1. While there is no doubt about the quality of the images it produces, it does suffer from some design flaws, probably the results of compromises to fit such a ...
Not sure why, but I do like this shot !
Another great dinner at Uomaru !
Look at what an idiot did in order to prevent people from sitting on his precious fence !
Probably next in line for demolition.
Always a feast at our favourite Ramen place :)
If one day you have a chance to visit Kagurazaka in Tokyo, make sure to eat at Ware : Japanese food at its best ! We were among its very first customers when it opened three years ago and have been regular visitors since.
Got my 5D back from the Canon Service Center so took it out for dinner :)
Since I was not happy with the sharpness my 5Dmk3 was giving me at full size, even with my 135mm/f2L (most probably one of the sharpest lens available), I decided to check its focus accuracy. Following this very simple procedure, I was able to adjust the AF for all my lenses. In the end, with ...
The epitome of good taste ! Shot somewhere in Kagurazaka.
Used to be served a few steps away from home. Sadly the restaurant has disappeared and I miss my spicy Korean noodles very much !
Beautiful costumes for the Awa Odori in Kagurazaka.
Not for the faint of hearts.
Love the bokeh on that one !
