    Hi all, I'm new to this forum. Here's sharing some of the candid shots of people I've taken in japan recently. Comments and critics are welcome! :)

    3. I had done some post-processing to give it a washed-out vintage look.

    I love Japan. Looking at your pictures brought back some memories of my time living there. I lived in Northen Japan. I like no. 1 the best.

    The first one is definitely the best out of this group. Looks like Japan when I visited. Nice work!

    Thanks, I'm glad you like the photo!

    mom2eight, I love japan too! I've been staying here for over a year now, and the overall experience has been nothing short of wonderful. Too bad I'll be leaving soon, so I'm taking as many pictures of here as I can before that day comes. :)

    Thanks!! Picture 1 and 4 were taken at Shinjuku, with the latter inside a train station. 2 and 3 were taken at Enoshima Island.

    Below is another picture taken at a train station. I can't remember exactly which train station this is. What struck me most about it is this walk-way, which seemed so endlessly long and straight. So I couldn't resist.

    Thanks guys!!

    Below is another photo I took recently, while taking the subway. The somewhat symmetrical "set-up" of the scene in front of me caught my attention. Interestingly, the man in the middle raised up his newspapers and blocked his face right after I finished taking the shot, and it remained at that position for the rest of the trip.... he must have spotted my camera! :lol:

    As usual, please feel free to comment or critic.

    ...and he figured, oh, just another bloody tourist. ;)

    ...is a small advantage for the gaijin shooter, since I guess you're not Japanese?

    Nicely done anyway.

    There is an amazing symmetry there, wow.

    The way they are angled.
    Both of the older men reading at same level.
    Both ends have long hair.
    Both old men have their briefcases on their laps.

    love it, love it, love it. What a lucky capture.

    LOL...

    Yeah, I'm a gaijin, but I'm an asian. So I probably don't look much different from the japanese on first glance. And I have to agree, sometimes I do wish I look more obvious like a gaijin tourist, so I can get away with taking more close-up pictures at them without attracting too much attention. :lol:

    Thanks!!!

    ...and both ends have a "poster" each on the walls, both sides of the railings on top are empty too!! Heheh...

    Thanks, I'm glad you love the picture!! Yeah, I thought I was lucky too. I probably won't ever forgive myself if I hadn't taken this shot... so you can imagine the adrenaline rush I had, as I struggled to take my camera out from the bag and shoot it. :lol:
