Sometimes, on some days, Tokyo is simply too much.

Oh, I can agree with that dude, the crowds in Tokyo get on my nerves after a while and I’m always glad to go to the countryside 🙂

I know what you mean. Most days I can deal with them, but now and again I just want to be as far as possible from them…

Me. Everyday! 🙂

I know exactly how he feels. It’s been one of those days

Likewise. Well, one of those weeks…

The shadows are so deep.
This location was a real challenge to find. I started with the Super Hotel sign in the background. I figured their can’t be that many. Well, around 20 in Tokyo it turned out. And I looked at all of them. More than once. But eventually I found it. It’s amazing how much the 7-11 loses it’s identity in a black and white photograph. And the no entry sign just vanishes without the red.
I like the guys coat, and the sharpness of the womans shoe shadow to the right. I think he’s tasting the sunshine myself.
A striking photograph, and a good half hour’s entertainment for me vicariously roaming the streets of where I would like to be right now.

Glad to hear you found it. And enjoyed doing so.
The woman disappearing into the shadows on the right is a part of the photo I really like, so good to hear you picked up on that.
There’s a relatively short window when the light shines down that street, so I was pleased to capture it lighting up some interesting people.

That sounds like a voiceover in a P.I. film noir :o)
Not sure if I would entitle that image ‘A thousand shadows deep’ or ‘A Chargeman Ken moment’, either way, it is a tactic I won’t adopt to avoid a street snapper now!

Haha, does a bit, doesn’t it?
Yes, probably for the best. His behaviour only drew me in.

Quite possibly. His anger at being sucked in — again.

He thinks his tongue tastes like charcoal. #charbucks
