One more day

One more day

One more day and I leave for New York City and the Jay Maisel Photograhy Workshop.  I think the welcome email from Jay does a good job summing up what I am in for 'We will start at 9am and wrap up around 10pm each night...you will be expected to get your ass out of bed, get out there, and shoot BEFORE class starts.'     All photography all the time... I can't wait.   Seeing that I am shutting off from work completely I worked from about 7am until midnight tonight in order to clear my desk to go on leave.   I have to work tomorrow but I didn't want to leave it all until the last day.   I did run out for one errand. Today’s Configuration: Leica M9 with a Summilux 35mm f/1.4 and Noctilux 50mm f/0.95.

The halls of bureaucracy... The Meguro Ward Office.

As with everything in Japan...when you buy a car you need lots of paper and copies and copies of documents providing you are who you say you are.    While waiting for my papers I checked out some of the helpful guides like the overview of the new system to manage my existence in Japan and what to do in an earthquake.

I had a good laugh when I first saw it and was reading the advice like make sure you know your neighbors and have good slippers in your house...but then figuring all the earthquakes we have it was probably worth reading this front to back.

After I finished all of my work I decided to go for a short walk to unwind after a very long day... my photowalks always do that for me.
