I wrote a whole slew of posts detailing the things that I saw (and ate) during the five weeks I spent in and around Tokyo last year. I’ve posted dozens of photographs from that trip on this blog, but I don’t think I ever got around to posting this one.
This is one of my favorite photographs from my time in Japan. It was taken from the high speed train ride back to the airport. I took dozens of pictures out of the train window, but at this particular moment, we were passing through a busy street near Tokyo Katsushika. There is so much happening in this photograph, from bike riders patiently waiting for the train to pass so that they can cross the street, to the people going in and out of shops down the street. Plus: a Kirin vending machine!
Every time I look at this photograph, I see some new detail that I hadn’t noticed previously. What do you see when you look?
