Light, looks, plus predictably lots of people.

Seems like you get a lot of “cross” looks everywhere you go. The guy with the sideways hat and no fashion sense is great.

Lovely the way the light is falling on him, isn’t it?
But yeah, I do get a lot of those looks. My winning smile clearly isn’t anywhere near as winning as I’d perhaps like to think!

You caught everyone in the crossing at a moment when they almost look as if they’re standing still – it’s quite odd. As if it’s staged, and no one is really moving. Given the B&W and the tilted frame, I get an old time SciFi movie feel – in a second, they’re going to all look directly at us, slowly raise their arms, point at us, and start making an other-worldly noise…

There is something ‘not quite right’ isn’t there? I wasn’t quite sure what it was, but you’ve described it perfectly.
It was the way the light was falling that made me take the shot. Happily got that and fortunately considerably more as well. Always nice when that happens.

If you wear your hat like that, you should expect your photo to be taken; no point in being cross about it 🙂

Haha, maybe! The great thing for me about the hat was that it allowed the sun on his face. Would have been a very different story if he’d had it on straight. Hopefully it’ll become a trend!

Shoes. My eyes roll down the gradient and land on the shoes. It seems I might not be the only one.

Good call. Hadn’t even noticed them. And now of course I can’t notice anything else!

Cant help being reminded of the last time I was in Ame Yoko and had the most delicious bowl of tanmen…

No shortage of eating places, is there? It’s a tough place to beat for a lot of reasons.
