Wonderful weather in Tokyo today. The sun was out, the sky was blue and the wind was only slight. It always seems that December and January can have some great warm winter days before February and March get a bit colder and darker.
With the weather so great, I took a walk around town. Recently, I have moved my apartment from Shibuya to Shinagawa, and so have been exploring some of the new places around Shinagawa, Minato-ku and the old Tokaido Line. My office is still in Shibuya, just behind Google Japan’s office in the Cerulean Tower, so you will still see plenty of photos from my main focus point, but you should also get a glimpse of some different areas of Tokyo as well. Whilst in exploring mode, I am planning to visit a few more scenic spots to bring back photos to share.
I have some photos from today’s outing taking a walk near Tennozu Isle as well as photos I took at after a business meeting yesterday at the Takanawa Grand Hotel, which had a magnificent Japanese traditional garden. I haven’t organized the photos from the Mitsubishi Museum in Yokohama yet either.
Do you all want to see more photos or maybe a bit less? I had some feedback that there might be too many photos and it was too difficult to scroll down the page.
I normally take about 200-300 when I am out. I have the camera set to auto fire at a slow repeat rate, but sometimes my finger stays down when I think I have a good shot. This can add to the amount of shots quickly ^^. I will often try different white balance settings if it is late in the day and the sun is setting as well. Of the 300 photos, I probably would use about 15-20 of them if they seemed to fit into the flow of the story. On some Photo Article posts where I have around 35 photos, I would probably have taken somewhere around 600 shots on the day.
Let me know what you think. Do you want more? less? Would you like to see different parts of Tokyo? more of Shibuya? or, perhaps I should save up and travel to other cities in Japan.
I would like to try taking some photos in the snow and show you what the countryside looks like in winter. I am more of a warm climate person so will have buy some extra sweaters for this ^^.
