Kamakura in Monochrom

Kamakura in Monochrom

I headed off yesterday with my friend David to catch Kamakura in Monochrom.  It was a cold and windy day and the streets were packed with people on holidays but we managed to find a few quiet streets to roam around. A knitting school - validated by Japan Vogue!  I didn't even know that Japan Vogue was validating knitting schools...

Today's configuration:  Leica M Monochrom, Summicron 50mm f/2.0 with a yellow filter.

The seaside wind was a bit too much so we headed back to Tokyo and shot around Shibuya...

David kept trying to seduce me with his Mamiya 645...  I think I have enough cameras now.

I also shot a roll of Ektar 100, Portra 160 and Ilford 3200!  I am dropping them off for development this morning so look for some more Kamakura images coming up over the next week.

Thanks for stopping by today...
