Photographer's Note

From my last post, fast forward 9 years to my last brief visit in Japan in 2018.

Ginza is a district of posh shops and restaurants. The main attraction for a photographer are, I guess, the neon lights at dusk. But it is also full of fascinating details, including restaurant signs, shop windows and street art.

As soon as I noticed this mural I knew I had to include a real person in the photo too. It looks like a quick snap, but any of you, who does this sort of street photography, will know that it’s a waiting game, that sometimes brings results and sometimes… not so much so. But I think, in this case, I was lucky. I had taken a few photos I was not so happy with and then this lady appeared. She could be a slightly older version of the painted girl looking through the shop window.

I hope it can be classified as an example of Nothing Special. :-)

Two more photos from Ginza in WS.
