  • Japan Snaps - 56K = Death (You have been warned...)

    A small look into the life I head while walking through Tokyo, Chiba, Saitama and occasionally Yokohama.

    I have decided NOT to do a 'hide' tag since it's bloody annoying to have to click EVERY single photo. Hell, if you're this far, you probably have cable-internet or simply are too illiterate to read this thread's title.

    Try Dropping Your Phone... good luck getting it back.

    Imagine my surprise when I was walking along Makuhari Beach, Chiba - a beach notoriously known for having several bodies and body parts wash up after the Tsunami - and suddenly saw the back of what appeared to be a severed head... OH MY FFFFING GOD.....

    Well I took my time and made a VERY large arc around the head until I could 'see' it with my zoom lens...

    Jeezus Christ....

    Wan wan!

    Team Pro-G (and those of you up on your big-business news in Japan will recognize 2 of the individuals here, both of which escaped jail-time!)

    I play airsoft (survival game) as a hobby here in Japan. It's fun, cheap and a good way to work out aggression.

      Japan isn't always a concrete jungle... at least not out in this portion of Chiba. However walking along this stretch of ocean brings back very numbing memories. After the earthquake and tsunami last year, I was part of a group helping clean up the rubble and clutter that was washing up - this included bodies and dead children who were floating on TOP of the floatsam. Sometimes I really hate living here but I guess it seems for all the wrong reasons.

        fuck yes, finaly!!!
        I was getting tired searching around the forum for this thread, sigh....
        anyway lets get to the point.

        If you don't mind i would like to use your pictures in one of my reports
        I have to collect quotes, images & building designs for my assignment
        it's something i have to do to dig deeper into myself, and find my preferences/style as future architect.
        and to be honest i have taken a real liking to certain pictures you toke.

        Personally I find the it very interesting how the designs and visual appearence of the buildings let it look like something imperfect or chaotic.
        but at the same time it gives off a positive and living mood.
        it's very different from dutch architecture that always wants everything clean and "perfect"

        anyway, i would like your permission

              Aquamarine, your photos on Mt. Fuji are simply astonishing. Thank you very much for sharing such majestic views with us. It really stimulates a hiker's heart to the core!

                    Did you say something?

                    I've never seen a boy happier to be picking onions that one of my nephews.

                    Holy shit, it's daikon!

                      Hey aquamarine
                      Amazing pictures! What kind of settings did you use for the "View from our new studio" picture? And is an HDR shot? I can't really tell.

                        That view of the scenic night city is amazing. I could look at it all day.
                        The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters.
