I have been shooting a lot of film lately and spent today writing up 3 posts from my recent film shooting.    It is a lot of work but slows me down and I am loving the results.

There was another Matsuri in Jiyugaoka a few weeks ago that filled the streets so I decided to hit the streets with my camera and see what I could capture .

Today’s configuration:  Leica M6-J, Kodak TMAX 400 with 28mm Summicron f/2.0.

My daily commute…

 Jiyugaoka Station

I try to get on the train by 7AM but even when I do it is crowded.   It is unbearable by 8:30AM.

Roppongi Station…   I always pass groups of young kids going to school.   I couldn’t have imaged taking a train myself at that age.
