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.

I Left Paul in Shinbashi

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

I was fortunate to be able to link up with my mate Paul who is visiting from Australia who is here visiting Japan.  It was great to chat tech, photography and just plain catch up with each other.  We walked over to Shinbashi station and said our goodbyes till the next time.

I took the opportunity to wander around in the humid afternoon sun.  There are some crazy backstreets with pubs the size of closets along side massive electronic stores.  It was a good end to a great day.  Good friends, good weather (at least is wasn’t raining), and lots of photographs.  A few of my favorite things.

Under the Shimbashi

Wedged in between Onarimon station and Shimbashi station lies a lovely plethora of backstreets, cafes, and drinking spots.  Some places it seems like time stands still, or that they have been forgotten by the people at large.  The wood breaks away from it’s frame, and the paint curls under the summer sun.  Soaking up the vibe and the sweat as I wandered back and forth from the two stations.

Just next to Ginza lies Shimbashi station.

A famous old used camera shop stood on one of

its corners for many years.  Now gone.
