I barely had time to finish blogging about my last trip to Tokyo in June because of all the work I had to clear when I returned, but I did manage to sneak another trip to Tokyo again last week.
It is probably going to be confusing, but I shall just consolidate all my photos and entry into the same blog about Tokyo.
This second trip I took (to be exact, my fourth trip to Tokyo in my lifetime) was a huge blur because everything was in a rush and I hardly had time to plan or to prepare for it. I only packed the night before, rushed off to the airport immediately after work, and the only plans I made, where the ones to meet my friends who are living in Tokyo.
I guess this whole sense of dashing about and rushing around manifested in my photos this time - It wasn’t quite motion-blur images I was going for, but more of a bokeh and out-of-focus effect.
Since I have seen the city and its sites several times, and over many years, so I figured, it’s no harm done if I have a whole camera of blurred crappy shots. It was worth a try. Besides, I will probably be in Tokyo soon enough once again.
This time in Tokyo, I wasn’t really looking around. I was just hanging around and soaking in the atmosphere, and really, just escaping from work. My brother was doing all the photography, with all his clumsy gear. I just snapped without really looking.
It worked really well for Shibuya Crossing particularly, when a person’s identity did not matter at all. Besides, it was so busy at the scramble crossing, everything was a blur as it is anyway.
As a whole, I really liked the effect of the photos. It wasn’t particularly good, but it was what I was feeling at that moment.
