Dinner at Kill Bill’s

Dinner at Kill Bill’s

I had a co-worker in town this weekend helping me with some things that work and I took him out for a few hours to show him a bit of Tokyo and grab some dinner. We didn’t have a lot of time so we headed over to Shibuya. It is always lively there with lots of see which makes it a nice place to get a quick Tokyo experience.

Today’s configuration: Leica M Monochrom with a Noctilux 50mm f/0.95

Guitar Player in Shibuya

Somethings just don’t phase me anymore after living in a big city for so many years…

Shibuya

Even after all these years I am still amazed at the scale of Shibuya Crossing…

The Ants of Tokyo…

Shibuya Crossing

After exploring Shibuya for a while we headed over to Gompachi in Nishi Asabu. I love this place. The style and decoration inspired the location for the big sword fight scene at the end of Kill Bill 1. If you haven’t seen it; #1 shame on you, #2 go watch it, #3 if you can’t wait just the sword fight scene between ‘The Bride’, GoGo and the Crazy 88s is on YouTube.

The food is great. The atmosphere is great. I am never disappointed here…

    Nice serie, as usual. I actually also came across this wrapped guy yesterday in Shibuya. If I had been luckier I could have been on your picture as well !

    I am growing increasingly in love with the shots coming out of your M Monochrom. Absolutely great. Did you do any post-processing, like adding grain?

    Thanks Carolos. I do post process them as they are a bit flat otherwise. Basic adjustments to contrasts, highlights, shadows and add a bit of grain.

    Wow! I love the shot of the crossing in Shibuya. I’ve seen so many shots of that particular area, but this is probably one of the best executed I’ve seen. Nice one! Nick

    From where did you take the bird’s eye photo of the crossing? During my last visit to Tokyo I tried getting a similar shot but couldn’t figure out the building.

    You can take it from the top floor of Excel Hotel in Marc’s City.
