A Nokton View of a Dreary Day

Put the  Voigtlander 50mm f1.1 Nokton lens on a Sony A7II camera and the dreariest day becomes a thing of beauty. Well, maybe not beauty, but perhaps an interesting alternative view of a dreary day.

Perfect imperfections of the seedy side of town.

My beautiful balloons.

Good friends

Strolling through Bashamichi

Yes, we have no bananas... plenty of other fruits are available.


All dressed up and somewhere to go.

From the original public waterworks of the city of Yokohama.

Gas lights are everywhere.

Eve in the garden of Eden.

Yamashita Dori is a great place to walk on a day like today.

"if you pose for me I'll take your picture"

"ok, how's this"

"you look beautiful"

The rose garden in Yamashita park.

It's a nice place to drink hot Earl Grey tea from a thermos.

Peg heads in love.

The deliveryman

It seems like Halloween is getting more popular every year.

The streets of Motomachi

The kids in the background saw I had a camera...

They insisted... I obliged.

Autumn is upon us.

Street photography

The people of Yokohama take their Ra-men seriously.

Halloween spooks

Tea shop

If I was younger I'd take a motorcycle trip across Japan. I'd sleep outdoors at night and count the stars in the sky.  I'd meet strangers and make new friends. I'd eat ra-men. Yeah, that's what I'd do... if I was younger. Instead I'll just take this picture and then move on.

A pumpkin infestation

Time for a high ball

They built this train station out of rails.

And, now it's time to catch a train and go home.

Thanks for stopping by!
