Midnight Monochrome in Omotesandō

January 28, 2018

After dinner at The Great Burger, we decided to burn some calories by wandering around Omotesandō for a while. It was pretty quiet at this late hour, so shooting a few frames in black and white seemed appropriate.Camera Configuration: Fujifilm X-Pro2 with a Fujinon XF 23mm f/2 WR lens.Whenever I’m in Omotesandō, it’s usually sometime in the late afternoon or early evening when the streets are packed with people. Walking around the same streets when most of Tokyo was getting ready for bed was strangely peaceful.Japan is home to the most photogenic and functional vending machines in the world. There are over 5.5 million of them scattered around the country.Takeshita Street is usually packed with teenagers and tourists looking to stay up to date with Tokyo fashion. Clothing manufacturers often use “antenna shops” on Takeshita Street to prototype new styles and trends. Think of it as an alpha test for the latest fashion trends.This gives me flashbacks to life in Las Vegas.We arrived at Harajuku Station just in time for the last train.Harajuku StationIf you enjoyed this post, be sure to connect with us on Instagram to view more photos and stories from our travels.
