Random Night Images

Posted in People, Places by tokyobling on August 2, 2011

Last month I had time to enjoy an evening stroll in Tokyo’s Ginza district. Usually famous for it’s high fashion and expensive shopping there are still plenty of run down older areas to explore. A fun ting to do when shooting at night is to play with shutter speed, as I did when I saw this old man calmly reading a newspaper while sitting on a busy street. The second photo is a normal shot of the same scene and maybe not as interesting as the first. Shooting at night you also quickly learn that most street lights have very different colors! From the vermillion-orange cast by festival lanterns to cold green and blue from roadside lamps. Sometomes though, you get lucky and stumble upon a more or less whie light, like in the last photo of the walking man. Enjoy!

      Thanks! I had a feeling you’d go for that one. (^-^) You don’t often get such a still subject when doing street photography…!

      Thanks May! I know what you mean! My friends say that after living in urban areas of Japan Europe and the US just feels deserted! (^-^;) Hurry up back here!
