Sleepy Monday

Sleepy Monday

It is a sleepy Monday morning for me.   I stayed up way too late working on my 10 things I learnt from shooting daily shooting post.   I am glad I wrote it as it was nice to reflect.   I wish I had more time as I have more reflections to share.   I'll need to write a Part 2 to this...If you liked this or want me to write about other similar topics feel free to leave a comment.    I take requests... What a beautiful day in Tokyo today.    The weather is a bit strange as it was raining earlier in the morning but you would never be able to tell based on the sky this afternoon.

Note:  All of today's shot were taken with a Leica M9 with a 50mm f/0.95 with a ND2 filter (my ND6 is still on back order) @0.95, iso160 and various shutter speeds.

I was thinking as I passed this today leaving the office that is surprised me that we still have visible earthquake damage in my office.   Maybe there is a shortage big glass panels?   Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Oh no!  American advertising coming to Japan.   "People of Japan:   These are not a snacks, it is a meal, well actually based on the calories count they are meals".

OK...now this one looks awesome, I will admit.  I will probably try this before the week is out... I have that Guns and Roses song stuck in my head "If you have a hunger for what you see, you'll take it eventually..."

I love how Japan can spruce up a construction site in a nice area.   Let's put up white walls so you can ignore the fact that we are tearing down and building up a new one and look at these pictures of puppies this fine art picture of what this place will look like soon.

..and yesterday I was able to get out and have a quick date with my wife Mayumi before going house hunting.   Below is taken by Mayumi at f/0.95....pretty impressive I think.   It is hard to get eyes sharp at this depth of field.
