Then comes the rain

Then comes the rain

I went to the 3rd day of Tokyo Photo last weekend but skipping the 4th as Tokyo was getting pounded with a typhoon.  The typhoon didn't turn out to be too bad mother nature is blessing us with a super typhoon that was just down graded to a tropical storm tonight.  Mother Nature really gives Japan a hard time... I decided to try out a few more head shots on some familiar faces; Holger and Giovanni.

Today's Configuration: Leica M9-P with a Noctilux 50mm f/1.4.

I headed out with Jeremy and one of his friends for dinner after the show.  We were being hit with a typhoon at the time so it was a little wet.

I don't shoot enough in the rain.   Mostly as all of my cameras except my GR are not water proof.

This is an unusual scene.  Usually all of the ramen seats are filled with Japanese business man.   This one was packed with young girls.

It is always helpful to be told where to stand and wait and then where to pay...
