MOZE Slapped in Urayasu

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

Another one to add to my collection of MOZE tags.  I am not sure why I dig his tag so much.  Partially I think it is because MOZE is active in my neighborhood.  And the other is I just love the way the tag just flows.  So, here it is a MOZE sticker slap.

Déjà Vu, Lost, but Found

Friday, September 10th, 2010

I decided to do a docodemo walk yesterday.  Meaning I just picked a station that I had never been and just started walking.  My plan was to get lost.  I didn’t want to get totally lost but that is what happened.  I got off at Edogawabashi station, and started to make my way roughly back towards where I had journeyed from.  Somehow I ended up in Waseda, home of Waseda University.  Stopped off to rest my legs and get a bite to eat and choose to head back towards Kagurazaka, in order to stop over at a nice French cafe.  However, I soon got a Déjà vu feeling as i past by a cracked window that was covered with gel stickers.  I thought to myself, how this looks like the window I passed like 90 minutes ago, and I soon realized that it was.  it made me laugh out loud to come to the realization that I had walked in a huge circle.  This is why I don’t really have a good sense of direction in the city.  Looking forward to the next time that I get lost.

I’m Melting, I’m Melting

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Ok, so I am not really melting, but it certainly feel that way.  You know its hot when you can feel the heat though the soles of your shoes.  That is the kind of heat we had today, and If it is a sign of what is to come, I know we are in for a hot Tokyo summer.

At least in the late afternoon, on my walk home, the sun was beginning to come down, and the mercury dropped a little.  The shadows were sharp and crispy like saltines.  The edges so defined between the shade and the lit part of some images.  I prefer the shade, at least to cool my weary head.

Lost keys, a found slapped images of Edison, I think.  If so, why would someone paste a tiny picture of Edison to a light pole?  That is beyond me.

Urban Space Step Details

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

The stroll around the little red light district behind Tsudanuma station yielded some macro treasure.  Some up close urbanized details of a city that is in flux.  An every changing landscape filled with oxidizing metals, faded stickers and lights that strain the eyes.  Into this urban space I step.  Into this urban swirl I play, live and rest.

Rest, those weary eyes, so that your soul can open and retain it’s former glory.

Decaying Helvetica: TSUDANUMA

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

I came across this lovely bit of decaying Japanese Helvetica text at Tsudanuma station on Friday.  At first glance I thought it was some attempt at scratching some text onto a pole, but once I really looked I discovered that the apparent scratches were in fact decaying bits of text that spell out the the station name phonetically in the hiragana alphabet.

Fonts, the art of how we communicate with written language are beautiful study in their own simplicity.

Rain Can’t Dampen a Fiery Passion

Friday, May 7th, 2010

The rain came back again today.  It seems like it never really left.  It also feels like the rainy season will come early this year.  Rain, rain, and more rain.  It sent me seeking cover to avoid getting my camera wet.  I got some nice macro shots of fonts and text in a state of decay from the stations today.

It just goes to prove that no matter the location, the weather, or my current state of mind nothing can stop me from taking pictures.  So, to all you out there that has a fiery passion, do not deny it.  Nurture your passions and go out and change your life.

A Knob, and a Rusty Tag

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

The weather headed back into the chills today.  The mercury dropped again, the wind and the rain returned with a vengeance.  Now sitting cozily in my room, sorting though some pics, I came across a few little images to bring joy into my life, while I await this spring that is suppose to be here.
