One of my favorite things to do here is walking the back streets and alleys with my camera. This is a side street near the covered mall in Naha. I shot this with my Fuji x100t.
Street photography touches my love of photography like no other genre. It's difficult to explain why. Maybe it's the historical relevance of recording society, although I've never been a big history buff. Maybe it's the rawness or reality of the moment, or maybe it's just the voyeur in me, like all humans that are fascinated with observing others and their environment.
This is the follow up to my Tokyo Street post from a few weeks ago. Street photography is rapidly growing in popularity all over the world. While it's not a new genre of photography by any means, it's possibly the most accessible. Nothing records the gesture of the streets like street photography can. Small seemingly insignificant moments around us can be fascinating when viewed after the fact.
Good morning everyone and Happy Friday. Here's a shot I grabbed while walking to the subway in Tokyo. I have many, many more to post so check back often.
Not the best of weather on day 2 in Tokyo. Rain, wind, and cold, but when Mother Nature gives you lemons...
