This photo was my favorite in the set. Happiness on a Saturday afternoon
This time in Shibuya Streets I wanted to change the camera viewpoint and give you something fresh to look at. To do this I took some shots in black and white. There are some nice shots showing the fashion and relaxed atmosphere of people.
Some nice hats in the background here as friends cross the road talking
There are so many casual fashions in Shibuya, that all look good
Plenty of people heading over to Center-gai for a stroll through Shibuya
Center-gai is always popular for people to walk down and up into the top end of the Shibuya shopping area. You can pass through Center-gai for Tokyu Hands, up towards HMV, Loft, Parco and then further up meeting up with Koen dori to to NHK and Yoyogi Park.
Mobile phones in hand, straps with character goods. Shibuya fashion on the streets
The bus is directed into its spot. Tokyo 2016 Olympic banners on the front
Sharing good times with friends. Autumn sure is a great season to be out in Shibuya
Looking back from Center-gai towards Shibuya Station
Mobiles to tell people where to meet or just that you are running late
A mother takes a moment of reflection as she pushes her pram through the crowds. What type of fashion will her child claim for the next generation of Shibuya young
Route 246 runs alongside Shibuya Station on the other side from Center-gai. If you follow the road straight you can get to Roppongi
The weather was so perfect today. The Autumn breeze was present bringing a fresh feel, but the sun was also out in force allowing people to wear their summer fashions again before it gets cold.
Sunglasses were a handy item today with the sun out giving us a final reminder of summer
More hats and more smiles. The weather combined with Shibuya fun had everyone in a good mood
Have a Dream? Center-gai advertises 'Ganbare Sendai'
This guy is selling mobiles, softbank and Docomo. The dog is Softbank's mascot. In the commercials he is referred to as Otosan, or father, of a rather culturally mixed family
Anyone want to buy some shoes. ABC Mart has plenty for sale
It was fun to get out and shoot some black and white pictures with the digital camera. I have been trying a few different things with the Nikon D700 since I got it and have been pleased with the results. I am hoping to get some new lenses and further experiment with different photo formats and scenes.
As the crowd clears the road gives way to the many shop signs, looking back here to Shibuya Station
I would really like to know what you think of the black & white photos compared to the color ones? Also to know which photos remind you of your time in Japan or make you want to visit?
