Day 296

Day 296

A lot of people might not realize but ShootTokyo was born out of my resistance to start a 365 Project.  I saw a lot of people doing them and it was really helping them improve their photography.   While I loved the outcome I couldn't stop thinking to myself who has time for that?  Not me...so I figured I would start a blog instead.  Yes, I heard what I just said.  Don't ask me what my logic was at the time.   I quickly realized that for a blog to be successful you needed to always be refreshing content and what a better way than shooting everyday... That was November 28th 2010 and today is Day 296 of my unintended 365 Project. If you want to transform your photography I suggest you do a 365 project...

Today’s Configuration: Leica M9 a Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 and a Summilux 21mm f/1.4.

I passed ABC Cooking today in Yokohama.   It is a cooking school with glass walls...lots of pressure.

I went back to Popeye Camera to drop off some pictures to be developed.  I really like this place.  The printing is great and the staff is really friendly...

Since I had some time to kill why the photos were printing... I decided to continue with my train line exploring to Denenchofu this time...

Here is a great example of something I learn from daily shooting.   Focus Point.   Last year I probably would have shot the picture like this...

but my shifting my focus point inside the train I think it makes a much more interesting picture.

I saw this girl as she was entering the station with her Boarder Collie.   That suitcase is actually a carrier for her dog so she can bring it on the train.   It was really funny.  She unzipped it and he hopped right in.
