One of the places we were keen to visit in Tokyo was Shibuya. This is supposed to be a very hip and fashionable place and just the spot for wondering and people watching. Perfect for us. However, we also thought we should take in some of the more cultural sights like Meiji Jingu.
This is shrine is right next to the station and once you have walked under the massive gate is pretty 15 minute stroll through forest to get to it.
On the way though was a huge stake of old sake barrels covered in woven straw. A very nice, if unexpected photography subject they made.
Although it wa the detail that caught the eye, there were rather a lot of them.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
