Ueno: Deconstructed Constructions

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

The world in which we live is full of rectangles, squares, angles, triangles, and so on.  Most everything can be reduced to these simple shapes.  Even the organic nature of plants lends themselves to be studies as shapes.

Here in the back streets of Ueno, all of the shapes come colliding together.  The round leaves, contrasting with the angular structures.  They all work together to form an interesting picture of Tokyo that I love.

Just Some Extra Ordinary Doors and Windows

As I continue my pursuit of the geometrical beauty found in the Tokyo Megacity, I sometimes wonder how all these people that live literally on top of their neighbors keep their peace of mind.  I need my space, or at least a bit of solitude where I can organize and calm my thought.  I am know that behind these doors and windows the inhabitants are able to breathe a bit more freely.  It is their own personal domain.  Or in some cases it is part of a public interaction space where they can drink, eat and be merry with friends.

Doors, and windows divide us from each other, yet they are portals.  They allow, at the discretion of those involved, to pass from one side to the other.
