It is All Available in a Square

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Everybody has heard how tightly packed everything is here in Japan.  No room at times to even stretch ones legs.  For the most part this is true, and to show and this image shows it in a visual exploration of urban Japan.  It is all so neatly packed and full of the essentials, stamps, drinks, smokes, a door, and an izakaya (drinking place).

Rectangular, Nothing but Rectangles

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

Recently, I have just been to busy to leave the house. I spent the whole say in front of my computer screen writing.  I was going over some images I captured the last time I was wondering around downtown.  This one just popped out at me.  As I gazed into the image, I saw nothing but rectangles.  Aged, dirtied, and beautiful urban fragment under the JR Line in Shimbashi.  I got lost in the shapes.  I just couldn’t help it.

Tokyo Forrest Revisited

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

On my way to meet up with some mates I passes by a poster I have seen many times.  I first photographed it about 2 years ago.  I couldn’t pass up the chance to revisit this image.  It is wedged in between Otemachi and Tokyo station.  There along this old stretch of corridor there hangs a lovely urban forrest.  A constant  reminder to me of the disconnect that we feel living among the concrete, iron and neon of Tokyo.  There is sits on the wall, slowly yellowing, with its leaves never shedding.

Communication by Way of Finger Writing

Monday, June 8th, 2009

We all have done it at some point in our life.  Wether its drawing on a foggy window on the bus or writing “Wash Me !” on a filthy dusty car.  We all have picked up our finger and scribbled something, some message to the world.

Dusty, Dirty, Communication at a basic simplistic level has the possibility to convey a complicated meaning.
