I was recently in Kyushu for a four-day shoot for KLM magazine and had the chance to visit the hot-spring town of Beppu. First time I have been there. Struck me as quite similar to Atami, which has a sort of 'post-Bubble-era-shabby-chic' feel to it.
It's nice to be shooting for a living. If the time constraints allow though it's always doubly nice to be able to squeeze in a few shots of subject matter which may end up being more for me than the magazine.
This was one of those: shop window in a slightly down-at-heel arcade [covered mall], full of objects of yesteryear.
