Afternoon constitutional

Yet another one from the #GPlus2YearAnniversary  photowalk.  (I must say I got quite a few shots I liked on that day!)

This was taken just outside of Yanaka cemetery.  It's a great place to walk around and get people shots; I took another photo around this area during the sakura season that I really liked as well, and the whole area seems to have a temple or shrine on almost every corner.

It's a 3 day weekend, yay!  But I work on Monday still… (>_<).  But hopefully only a half day, so it's still a 2-and-a-half-day weekend 😉

Goodnight from Tokyo!

Passing glance

This week has been raining like the dickens here in Tokyo – I'm glad I was able to get out the previous 2 weekends and shoot the cherry blossoms before they were all washed away.

This shot was taken in Yanaka, the site of a fairly large cemetery in the Nippori area.  It's usually a quiet and peaceful place, but the crowds come out during the time of the sakura/cherry blossoms.  However, you can still find some moments of quiet if you venture off the main road.
