At the risk of over-singing the praises of Akabane [there’s been a few articles here about it recently], here’s some shots from a recent walk around the area. On a day I felt in the mood to focus on textures, colour and shadows.
There’s one thing Akabane is very good at serving-up and it’s ‘shabby chic’: old stuff, faded stuff, overgrown stuff, stuff that seems a little neglected or past its sell-by-date.
Akabane has a lived-in look. And a lot of history.
