City In The Sky

I took this down in Shinjuku a week or so ago. I didn’t really intend to take any photos of the buildings, but as I was walking by and saw this scene I decided to give it a try. As it happens, it reminds me of the intro to a certain TV show of my childhood. Any guesses what show I’m talking about? Click Here To Purchase A Print

Of course I took a host of other photos, but I enjoyed this one specifically for the way the street was leading the eye right up to the...

Orange Autumn Evening at Matsudo Jinja

Although Spring is on the way, it feels to me like Autumn was only yesterday. I think part of the reason is that the Autumn colors this year seemed to last for a while. The Autumn of 2012 didn’t seem nearly as colorful to me, especially around where I live. But this year the colors lasted well into December. Not that I’m complaining – it was a beautiful sight, and gave me plenty of opportunity...
