This past July my daughter and I decided on a whim to take a trip to Tokyo for a few days. She was out of school for the summer and it was perfect for some quality father daughter time. It’s been two years since our last trip. Scary how fast time goes by. On my last trip to Tokyo I had just bought the x100T and was testing it out. Here are the links to part 1, part 2 and part 3 from that trip. Now, a little over two years later I was back in my favorite city, this time with a shiny new x100F ready to break in. Most of these were edited using the new photos app in the beta version of iOS 11 on my iPad Pro 9.7.
My last two x100 series cameras (x100s & x100T) where both black, but this time I decide to go back to the silver like my original x100. Hello beautiful.
I’ve always been mesmerized by the bright city lights at night, and Tokyo never disappoints. In fact, I think that I prefer shooting at night in Tokyo more than the daytime. I don't know, maybe all cities have more character at night than the day.
While my daughter shopped I walked around and enjoyed the local scene. I never grow tired of people watching. There's so many characters, so many stories everywhere you look.
Not knowing who they are, what they do, where they're from, or where they are going is part of the fun. It's like random characters in a movie where I decide what part each person plays and what their story is. It's fascinating and it never gets old to me.
The new x100F focuses much better in low light compared to previous models.
Lanterns are one of those things about Japan that I never get tired of. They can transform an ordinary scene into extraordinary. This entrance would have never caught my eye were it not for the lanterns.
