Last Week

Last Week

I have been getting up super early to avoid the head and crowds on the train to work.   I am getting to work so early I sometimes arrive before Starbucks opens... I enjoy the quiet peaceful commutes to the office.    Nothing particularly special has been going on the past few weeks.  I have just been super busy getting up to speed at my new job.

Today's Configuration: Leica M Monochrom with a Summicron 28mm f/2.0

Nice quiet roads to listen to music while I walk to the office.  I enjoyed crowds of Tokyo but not when it is so hot out.

I love that my train station has a PR Board.  I love it even more as it is actually called a PR board.  Their message "Make You Smile"...

I have been thinking about playing with video a bit.  I think it will bring a nice new angle to ShootTokyo and breath some life into my sad YouTube Channel.   I was looking at the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera but they are sold out across Japan and have a 2x crop factor which make my Leica lenses pretty useless.    The Sony A7S looks really good and has a full frame sensor and handles 4K video.   Any thoughts or advice?

I've been listening to a lot of Adele lately.   I really love her album 21.  It is one of those albums I can play over and over again.

We had a typhoon come through Tokyo last week.   Thankfully it mostly passed us and we just got a little bit of rain.

I headed down to Ginza one night to get a new strap for my watch.  The one I had got really dirty quickly which was disappointing.

I stopped in Panerai.  Much to my surprise they only had 4 possible choices; blue, yellow, green and buffalo (for fall) but they could order one that would arrive in 4-6 weeks.  What a great way to disappoint your customer.   Don't keep the basics in stock...
