Some time ago I was browsing my images from my last trip to Tokyo during Winter of 2015.
While browsing I discovered many unedited pictures and decided to make a series out of them because they all follow a consistent theme and unlike my previous modern architecture photos they are in colour. Please have a look here.
Lately I’ve been processing more shots from my past travels to Japan. This not only includes the beautiful landscapes of North Japan but also includes some modern architecture from Tokyo. I also managed to continue two recent series, the “Observer” and “Zebra” theme got an addition each.
Here are the first 3, enjoy 😉
Zebra 2 The zebra theme is getting an addition, I'm considering whether I should do more series just like the "The Observer" series.
The zebra was seen in Minato Mirai, Yokohama, Japan.
Tunnel View This one was shot in Minato Mirai, a central business district in Yokohama, Japan with a lot of interesting (modern) architecture.
The Observer 4 Again, from time to time I keep updating repeating themes which I like most. "The Observer" is a series about dominant, rather abstract looking buildings gazing over a bunch of smaller / inferior buildings, with an intimidating posture.
In this case it's the second tallest building and 4th tallest structure (as of 2016) in Japan named Yokohama Landmark Tower. It's located in a central business district of Minato Mirai, in Yokohama, Japan.
The area around the tower is very vibrant and I really liked the way how the tower is connected to the surrounding buildings, it's very clever and looks amazing.
It’s already three months ago, when I came back from Japan. Until now I only showed only a few abstract architecture shots, but I don’t want to miss to show some other pictures which represent Japan, unlike the other pictures.
Here is one from Mount Fuji and Tokyo.
The skyline shot is overlooking 杉並区 (Suginami), the west part of Tokyo, it was taken from the Tokyo Metropolitan Goverment building. On the left side in the front you see the Park Hyatt Tokyo Hotel which became famous after the movie Lost in Translation. On the right side in the background you can see Fujiyama, the highest mountain in Japan, overlooking the mountain ridge in front of it.
The other one shows a dusk mood at Mount Fuji (富士山). The shot was taken at Kawaguchiko.
