One Orange Wonder

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Other than the 4 a.m. aftershock this morning the day went by pretty smoothly.  The air was damp and it rained on and off all night.  The skies were gray when I hopped on the train to make my way into Chiba.  The lights are still off on the trains in a massive effort to save electricity.

On my way back to the station the air was chilled, but the sun was out.  I paused in front of a house to stare at this enormous orange flower.  It was there reaching up towards the warm sun.  Strong in spirit.  Bending little in the breeze.  It is my orange wonder.  A strong warrior among the concrete, and potted plants of Ichikawa.

One Orange Wonder

Backside Alley Shinagawa

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

I was lucky to have to visit immigration to pick up my visa today.  Ok, so I wasn’t really lucky, the immigration building in tokyo is a 15 minute walk from a little known station, and a good nearly 30 minute walk from Shinagawa station.  At least on the way back to Shinagawa station, the sun was high and the weather was cool without being cold.

I found a little back alley that pulled me to walk down as I was making my way to the gleaming Shinagawa station.  There were the back of stores, the entrances to offices, and even a tiny fish market.  They were all wedged in there between the narrowest of alley ways.  They were just there waiting for me.  Lovely winding Tokyo.

Ueno in August, Pipes, and Lotuses

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

After visiting the heart of Tokyo today, I am thankful for being close to Tokyo Bay.  It might not be much of a difference, but being near the water does keep things a bit cooler.  Surrounded by all that concrete and steel juts breeds hot air.

Wandering around some of the backstreets of Ueno is always an interesting for me and my lens.  I am never quite sure what I am going to find.  Walls that have been completely taken over by pipping and meters, A beautiful Lotus pond full of blooming flowers.  All harmonizing in the summer heat.
