Fun dynamic! I do love how the faces on the right are aligned and the narrow path between the two lines.

Likewise. Very pleased how they all line up. But it’s the woman seemingly peeking round and staring at the camera that really makes it for me.

Are you talking about the woman with the sunglasses? I feel somehow some kind of pressure with three people looking at you or the camera. We really have the feeling of street photographers being “weirdo” (although it’s not… but difficult to explain to people).

Yes, she’s the one.
I know what you mean. Didn’t use to like it to be honest, but now I much prefer it if someone is looking at me/the camera. Gives an image something extra — a certain intimacy of sorts perhaps.

I like the shopping street pics you post; do you have a favorite that you usually haunt?

Yes, without a doubt Ueno’s Ameyokocho. On a sunny day in particular it’s hard to beat. Interesting place with equally interesting people.

Great photo, Asakusa, right? Always a great location for street photography!

Spot on. Yeah, it is a good location, especially around the JRA and bar areas. Some real characters about.

Visited Asakusa once with my wife and really liked it. However, haven’t been back since we’ve had kids since it’s a bit farther away from the house and a little too crowded for the little ones. We’re more likely to visit Shimokitazawa which also has a good vibe but less congested.

I can appreciate that. Horribly busy at times. Better to wait til the little one has grown up a bit.
