I'll have another week or two out in Tokyo later this month, so I might get a chance to scope it out! Already checked Meiji Temple out in Shinjuku, but the gray sky kept blowing out my exposures, particularly against the dark, dark wood of the structures and Torii gates.

I'm well aware that Japan privacy laws are nothing to be trifled with. I can probably give out a pretty broken Japanese explanation that I'm not trying to photograph people, they've not been the focus of any of my shots so far. Hell, I've never even done portrait photography or people photography. One day, one day. I think one of the volunteers that are staying in the shared house here might be game for it, so that could be fun.

I think someone was very nearly going to call me out on it when I was passing through the cutepunk part of Tokyo- there was an alleyway that lead to some sort of establishment, it was very pink inside and I think the worker was constructing a plush rabbit or something. The circumstance and the colors did not mesh at all, so I would've loved to snap it- the scene felt wrong in all the right ways. I pretty quickly established that I couldn't line up a good, exposed shot with the crowd and saw its employee come rushing out the door to address me the moment I started walking away. No conflict, thankfully, but too close for comfort.

Two from today, courtesy of the Shijo area:

If I knew a thing about photoshop, it'd be a great thing to emphasize the torii gate or the bike in either circumstance.

Here's a few I didn't post with the last pass:

Yoink are your photos ever not blurry? Like are you surrounded by a constant haze of blurryness?

Hahahahaha... yeah, pretty much. :))
Actually I was just getting started but I believe the cameraman was also quite intoxicated by that point. Throw in the extremely hectic, multiple-source lighting in the area to confuse the hell out of the camera and it's amazing you can see what I'm wearing at all. My indecisiveness on what pose to strike can't have helped, either.

I shoulda put down the beer and done some air guitar... hindsight, alas.

I went and bought a tripod and walked it for giggles in the neighborhood.

Would look best with a foreground subject with background lights and rather a lot more ambient light. Will need to find some fun use for it at some point.

Wow, what mm of bullet did you use? Must have been some form of uber powerful artillery, as well.

(Nice pics)

135mm on a crop sensor, with a little post post-process cropping and sharpening. Best I've got at present, besides the 70-210mm Quantaray zoom I've only ever actually used once and don't trust to make quality photos. Prolly underselling it if I put it on the tripod...

Anyways, in lieu of another seven photos, I've put most of my best shots in a single Imgur album; it should all be new stuff until you get to the moon shot again.

Have a gander as you please!

It's been a while!


My niece, born this morning. She is alternately adorable and just a regular baby, i.e. noisy and oddly-shaped. However, she is currently only infrequently noisy which gives her a leg up on other babies in my experience.

Double post, but I have to share what I saw as I left this convention:

RIP that guy's rear-viewing angle. Which convention were you out at?

I took some more pictures!

I slapped a 2x lens filter on the end of my 100mm vivitar. The point of focus is way off, such that it can only focus maybe 20-40 cm at max from the tip of the lens, but it makes some cool macro pictures!
