Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive

"Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive" was a popular song written in 1944 by Harold Arlen (music) and Johnny Mercer (lyrics). It's a very positive song and when I'm out taking pictures it's the kind of mood I'm in; it's all about being happy and joyful. Now that I've got that out of the way in this post I have three different sets of images taken on 3 separate days with 3 different lenses,

Day 1: Zeiss 25mm f2.8, Biogon T* (M-mount) lens on a Sony A7II camera
It's a good way to start the day, she's handing out free tissue packs.

Another bird feeding frenzy.

The nautical theme is everywhere in Yamashita park.

A nice couple, well dressed and heading out for some fun.

Kitchen confidential - breaks over, back to work.

Motomachi shopping street. Looks like she shopped 'til she dropped but kept on going anyway.

Steamy goodness in China town.

If it's good one has to stand in line to get some.

More of that steamy goodness.

Free home delivery, one dish at a time.

The first date!

The long ride home.

Day 2: Voigtlander Super Wide Heliar 15mm f4.5 Aspherical III (M-mount) lens, Sony A7II camera

It was time to re-check the cherry blossoms at Miurakaigan

Things are looking good!

It looks to me like the blossoms are just about at their peak.

I bet it's more fun to be inside the train looking out.

There's a lot of excitement out at the duck pond.

Lovely atmosphere out here today.

Back on the main road the crowd is getting bigger. Everyone is carrying a camera.

Got to get that selfie.

It's the blue train!

The Miurakaigan train station changed their sign from blue to pink just for this time of year.

After lunch I went to Miura beach and was delighted to see some people riding horses.

A real friendly group of people.

Day 3: Voigtlander Heliar Vintage Line 50mm f3.5 (M-mount) lens, Sony A7II camera

This 50mm f3.5 lens is quickly becoming my favorite.

Still life at the Ookagawa river.

There's always something blooming in Yokohama.


A post card looking day down at the waterfront.

Out on Osanbashi pier.

The Yokohama bay bridge.

This little lens is a delight to use.

A man, a woman, and a city - lets make a movie.

Flying high at Akarengosoko.

Lovely clouds today.

Last shot of the project: The Cosmo Clock Ferris Wheel

They better watch out for low flying planes.

Thanks for stopping by!
