Great find. He has the relaxed look of a guy who has stopped there many times.
Cheers. Very happy to have found it. A great place in so many ways. And yeah, definitely didn’t seem like his first time. Far from it.
Wow 🤩 this is definitely movie poster material Lee. The lightening and framing is wonderful!
Thank you very much! It’s such a great spot, both to simply enjoy and photograph. It has so much character that even capturing just a tiny bit of it makes for an intersting photo.
There is so much I like about this. Happy New Year Lee!
There is definitely a lot to like. It exceeded my expectations and then some. A special little spot indeed. And thank you. You too. Happy New Year!
On the one hand, a great depiction of life in Tokyo. On the other, not a safe thing to be doing right now during these Covid times.
Cheers. Yeah, that’s a good point, although not quite what it seems. It was outdoors, there was hand sanitiser for everyone, and staff were wearing masks. Plus perhaps even more importantly, it was taken a bit ago, before the recent uptick in numbers. An increase that will hopefully be kept under control before things do get out of hand…
There’s a real golden glow about the centre of this scene; the light, the drink, the reflections, the counter and, of course, that wonderful face. He is so well turned out. Very neat haircut. He could easily be a semi-regular in the Midnight Diner. Looks like he has plenty of stories to tell.
It’s such an incredible spot, and then when the old fella turned up and leaned in towards the lamp, it got even better.
He really could, and yes, I couldn’t agree more. Stories galore.
