The Voigtlander 40mm f1.2 Nokton VM lens makes me happy!

The Voigtlander 40mm f1.2 Nokton VM lens is magic! When I spend the day with this lens on my trusty Sony A7II camera taking pictures I'm always pleased with the results. Here are the shots from yesterday's walk around Yokohama.

It's that time of year again.

Deep thoughts.

Perhaps not so deep thoughts.

No music no life.

No music.

Thinking about work.

It's not always good news on the other end of the line.

Always carry one's self with dignity and pride; a little charm and humility helps too.

A well tanned man.

Rocky goes to Yokohama.

Happy to be here.

A storm's a comin'

Oh yes it's gonna be ladies night tonight.

We're going to ladies night too!

Office ladies going to lunch.

There sure is a lot of deep thinking going on around here.

Hey! turn that frown upside down!

She's been there and done that.

I think he's going to ladies night too! Girls better watch out for this guy, I think he's looking for some action!

Let's check out China Town.

This place is always full of lively people.

I can hear David Bowie now "Oh, oh, oh, little China girl"

The streets are clean in China town.

The weather is a little cooler today - thank goodness.

Now I can hear Prince "She wore a raspberry beret"

It's so dark and overcast today that the neon signs are already on.

I'm slipping through the smallest back street of the back streets.

Happy to be here.

It's the middle of the day on a Tuesday - why aren't these people at work?

Don't let that phone out of your sight.

The delivery man.

And, the other delivery man.

Lookin' for the exit. Time to move on.

There is no escaping the Colonel...

...many have tried, all have failed.

It's time to ride the rails and head for home.

People, get ready
There's a train a-coming
You don't need no ticket
You just get on board

Thanks for stopping by!
