Shopping at Leica Ginza

Shopping at Leica Ginza

When I was walking into my office the other day there was a big Hato Bus parked out front...  Kai loves Hato buses so I took a photo for him.   Kids in Japan love Hato buses.   I think they must be attracted to the bright yellow.   You can see these tour buses everywhere in Japan. Today’s Configuration: Leica M9 with a Summilux 35mm f/1.4.

今日のカメラ:私のライカM9をつかいます。レンズはSummilux 35mm f/1.4。
