So, a little background to this image. Almost 4 years ago I took a trip down to Yokohama, which is about a 2 hour trip by train from where I live. My plan was to get there around sunset and shoot into the early evening around the Yokohama bay area. I ended up running a little late, and had already been forced to ride some very crowded trains through Tokyo, so when I finally got there I was ready to shoot! I got to my spot, set up my tripod, got my camera locked in … only to realize I had left my battery at home. Talk about a face palm moment! What could I do? I ate the dinner I had brought with me, packed up my bags, got back on the crowded trains and went home.
I’ve wanted to go back for that photo for quite some time, but things just never worked out. I’ve been back on several occasions for meetings, but the weather was always rainy. Thankfully, while my brother was in town, we were able to spend an evening in Yokohama and I finally got a shot that I was looking for. It’s been a long time in the making, but I like to think it was worth it.
