Shibuya at Night

Shibuya at Night

I was able to run out and shoot a bit in Shibuya the other night.  I always love shooting in Shibuya at night as there is so much to see…

Today’s Configuration: Leica M9 with a Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 and Summilux 35mm f/1.4.  FujiFilm x100

Jiyugaoka Station

I hopped the #5252…

I played a bit with slow shutter speeds…  This can always be fun.

You don’t get to see full walls of graffiti too much in Tokyo… I thought I would stop and shoot it a bit…

  1. Some great shots! Shibuya is a great area as there is always something happening and lots to see and do.

  2. Once again some great photos! Just curious, what model manfrotto tripod are you using? What about the tripod head? thanks and keep up the great work!

  3. Always love the subway shots! Thinking of spending a day or night on the T in Boston trying out some different shots for fun…

  4. Hi
    I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy and appreciate your images and look forward to finding them in my twitter stream every morning here in Canada.
    I also thought I should let you know that for the last couple of days many of the images are bisected by the toolbar that is intended to sit at the bottom of the page. I can send you a screenshot if that helps. I’m using the latest version of safari on a macbook. I wondered if any other viewers were having this problem?


  5. Really like the one of the person by the vending machine. Do you find it hard to focus in lower light light that?

  6. love the night shots,keep them coming….

  7. love photo number 3!

  8. I love the focus on your pictures.

  9. Love those graffiti Shots but #’s 2 & 10 are bokehlicious.

  10. No problem on my white macbook with chrome 14 or safari 5.1 with the bar causing the images to act funny.

  11. Jeremy – I use the 055 Manfrotto. I am not sure which head, just the normal swivel ball.

  12. Hi Chris – If you can drop me a mail at dave[at] with a screen shot that would be helpful. I am using the same configuration as you without issues so I would like to explore what the issue is.

  13. Rick – Not really. The Leica is very easy to focus.
