A couple of extra comments about yesterdays topics: fashion here is frequently weird not just sometimes. And women, young & old, NEVER go out with out a full face of make up (unless they are old crones). There is one exception; I have it on good authority that women will often wear a mask to cover up if they cannot be bothered slapping a face on. Ingenious!
Goodness despite weeks of meticulous planning, I'm having a run of bad luck with my Tokyo shoots:
Yesterday: Tokyo skyline with the Tower from Rappongi - cancelled because of an exhibition in the observation space And a rooftop shoot - cancelled - rooftop closed because of rain.
This morning the amazing architecture site that took a huge effort to locate, and arrange a guide, cancelled because the building managers do not allow photographers' access any longer. I had trekked out to Kanagawa: 2 trains, plus walking, over an hour each way. Pity the guide did not check that out.
A major faux pas. I was deeply disappointed. This is what I should have been shooting this morning...
