About This Blog
Like the header states, the real beauty of Tokyo is the concrete mass and surrounding eyesores.
There's something about it...
Flashing neon signs that splutter and crackle as you walk by.
Cockroach-infested backstreet noodle restaurants.
Graffiti and sticker art is also an interest of mine, but on the photography side of things.
It all gives Tokyo character.
My interest in these kind of pics was way before I found out about Koji Onaka.
His book Tokyo Candy Box is a source of inspiration for me.
Here's a link:
And some of his pics above.
Nothing has quite summed up Tokyo City like he did on his old Pentax.
Just in case you might have a passing interest, I am using:
Casio Exilim zx1000
I shoot in JPEG.
Try to replicate what I see as best as I can without enhancing the images.
Enjoy the pics.
