Usually it stops raining at night and we wake up to a nice day. Sometimes, on rarer occasions it will stop raining during the day and we'll witness a beautiful transformation that only Mother nature can do.
The rain stopped around 11:00 am and the skies started to clear, grey replaced with blue; clouds that looked like they were painted on a canvas with a brush.
Everything was purified by the rain and looks clean.
It's a beautiful day for a walk.
Today I'm shooting with a Voigtlander 50mm f1.1 lens on my Sony A7II camera. I can't help but play around with shallow depth of field.
Waiting to cross the road.
Now that the rain has stopped the hip-hop dance contest can begin. The traffic crossing safety guard is getting ready to bust a move.
They look more like ballerinas than hip-hop dancers.
This is more like it.
I'll leave the dancing to the young and move on toward Yokohama Park.
The green, green moss of home
An unexpected surprise near China Town. The sunflower shakes off the rain drops and faces the sun.
Gold dragons greet us at the entrance to china town.
The signs of autumn are everywhere.
The 50mm f1,1 lens can transform a mundane back ally in Motomachi into a scene from a ramantic movie.
A total stranger becomes the main character; looking for love in Motomachi.
My long lost cub scout shirt turns up in a recycle shop.
Everything is out of focus, as it was meant to be. A Tommy Oshima technique that I hope to become more proficient at.
Only in Japan!
I continue to marvel at the clouds in the ski...
...as well as the people under them. A closer look at the people in the previous picture. Selfie nation!
