Clearing my head

Clearing my head

I have been getting home super late at night for the past week.  Last night I wanted to go for a walk and clear my head after getting home.   I was also really hungry so I went in search of something to eat. I haven't really given my new Summilux 50mm a good workout so I figured I could kill a few birds with one stone.  I forgot how nice it is to walk around a quite area late at night and shoot some photos.  It is a habit I used to have that I really want to get back into.    I forgot how therapeutic it can be.

I am in search of the world's great photo.   I am looking to unwind and give myself some thinking time alone in my head.   I am someone who never stops so this time is pretty special to me...

Today's Configuration:  Leica M9-P with a Summilux Black Chrome 50mm f/1.4

Since it was after 11PM many of the places in my little small town were closed.  Jiyugaoka is a beautiful charming little town but one of the downsides it is doesn't have the 24 hours a day every day of the week vibe that some parts of Tokyo has so your options are limited late at night.  That said, I wouldn't change it for the world.

I did find some Yakitori places...

and Ramen Shops... but I was looking for something a bit lighter so I skipped them and focused on my photography.

I ended up picking up some pre-boilded eggs and bread at 7-Eleven and had toast and eggs.   I love that you can buy pre-boiled eggs at the convenience stores in Japan.   It's very convenient.  Toast and boiled eggs is my default meal when I want something light and don't know what to eat.

Push bicycles and traffic cones.   Ready to fight whatever crime comes their way...

Perhaps I need to revive my reporting on this growing problem...
