Shinjuku: Wide Angle

Shinjuku: Wide Angle

I went for a short walk around Shinjuku after work tonight.  I love getting out and walking around during 'magic hour'.   I probably should have gotten out just a few minutes earlier but still love the color of the sky in these photos. Note:  All photos are shot hand held with a Leica M9, Summilux 21mm f/1.4, iso 160 @ f/1.4 with various shutter speeds.   I also use a 21mm viewfinder for framing the shot.

I love the power savings but not sure they need to light them but it did help make my picture look a bit cooler.

I didn't have a tripod and couldn't get the shutter speeds I needed so I decided to embrace some blur!

I wanted to pick up a copy of 'Jay Maisel's New York' but it is out of print and they didn't have it.  I was able to find a copy on Amazon.co.jp!

I needed to do a couple of calls on my way home but needed to kill some time before the calls so I decided to walk around Shinjuku a bit.

Home sweet home...but just for a few more months.   We are going house hunting again this weekend.   With the masses that have left Tokyo I expect we can find somewhere great.   Wish me luck!
