Three Shots on The Guardian Website Today

The Guardian newspaper in London has started a new Tokyo City Guide and as part of that there is a section on Tokyo photobloggers. It was nice to be asked to contribute and to recommend some other photographers for inclusion.

This shot is one of three of mine featured. I submitted a selection to the editor. He chose the ones he liked.

I shot this back in 2009, at the Kagurazaka 'awa-odori' dance festival in Tokyo. Nikon D300 and 50mm f/1.2 Ai.

    Beautiful selection… alas the editors goofed in another photographer's caption: "Adrian Storey/Uchujin: "The city that invented the term 'karoshi' (death from over work) and a culture of alcohol abuse takes it's toll on another salaryman" #"

    +Todd Thacker true although this is The Guardian who famously mis-spelled its own name on the paper: The Grauniad.
