Welcome to the new ShootTokyo! I brought ShootTokyo as far as I could technically and finally got some help with the layout and design. I think it looks fantastic. I would love to hear what you think of it so please leave a comment and let me know. Forgive me while I get some random thoughts of my chest. I am loving having some time off as I am checking off a lot of things off of my projects list. I even organized my Internet Bookmarks today! God they were a mess. My eBooks will be ready in a couple of days. It will be available for subscribers of my newsletter so make sure to subscribe if you have not already.
I'm going global...
One thing I love in Japan is all of the department stores have car wash service in the parking garages so you can get your car cleaned while you shop!
The ShootTokyo Mobile...nice and shiny!
I have the coolest radar detector. It even detects Police cars driving near you!
I haven't complained about this in a while but...I am always floored by the lack of respect for 'No Parking' signs in Japan. Cars used to be horrible but after it was outsourced from the police the parking issues was solved. If I was the head of bike parking I would be melting all of these stray bike into paperclips...
I went out shooting last evening and got talking to these two girls on the train...
They liked my Leica. Now this is where Leica has truly done an amazing job marking themselves. Everyone knows the brand Leica in Japan. They may not know about photography, or even much about Leica but they know it is expensive and extremely high quality.
Speaking of expensive... a 1923 Leica prototype of the first 35mm camera sold for 2.16 million Euros ($2.7M USD) this week to an anonymous Asian buyer... I am anonymous so don't ask me!
These two girls were headed to Shibuya for a photography class... I let them try my M9-P.
I shot a few images of their cameras in Tokyo Camera Style...
If you are not familiar with Tokyo Camera Style it is a a very cool site that features all of the great cameras of Tokyo... I was featured on there earlier this week.
One thing I am becoming fascinated with is all of the public sleeping in Tokyo... and I don't mean by homeless people just regular tired people.
Such a good idea... I wonder why all police cars don't have this.
I admit I don't know as much about yoga as I should but Brain Yoga?
Thanks for stopping by today...
