Yesterday was Autumnal Equinox in Japan so the country was on holiday... except for me as I needed to work. Today’s Configuration: Leica M9 with a Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 and a Summicron 90mm f/2.0.    FujiFilm x100.

I love the train manner signs in Japan...  They are usually pretty funny.   You would think it would be common sense...but it's not.

I feel the same frustration about the never ending cones in Tokyo...

After some careful consideration I submitted and ate the Tsukimi Burger.  It was awesome!  I think there is such a small amount of beef that you really don't feel heavy after eating it.   I love it and will be eating it again soon I think.

I worked pretty late last night and then met up with my friend Pieter at Farol in Omotesando.  It is a great Brazilian bar.   I love this place...

Pieter brought a few lenses for me to try but the one I fell in love with was the Leica Summicron 90mm f/2.0.   I don't have any 'long' lenses anymore and have mostly been shooting 50mm, 35mm or 21mm.    I love a longer lens sometimes as it will let you engage your subject in a different way...  the rest of the shots below were shot with this lens.    I love how this lens renders color.   I emailed the GM of Leica Japan this morning to see if I can secure the next one coming to the shop as it is a bit hard to get this lens.
