Monday in Shinjuku

Monday in Shinjuku

At work Monday in Shinjuku I skipped lunch today and went for a quick walk.     It is sad to see the empty Tokyo Kaiten Sushi!...  I hope they re-open.  It is the unfortunately impact of the earthquake that rocked Japan just a few weeks ago. Note: All shots were hand held with my Leica M9 and Noctilux f/0.95.  All shots at .95, iso 160 and varying shutter speeds.

Finally I found the 'Bike Police'...here to enforce the bike parking laws of Tokyo!   Now I can see why we have Bike Parking issues everywhere in Tokyo.
