For a photographer, Tokyo is such a treasure. It is an electric city, buzzing with life and energy. It has some of the most amazing architecture and despite some crazy laws about taking photographs in public (you cannot silence the shutter sound on a smart phone, for example) the people are really friendly and respond really well to having their photograph taken. I love the city and feel that some of my very best photographs have been made there.
In my last little trip there in April, I did not have much time to myself and it never seemed to stop raining the whole time I was there. I did manage to get out at night and with the rain and all the neon lights, it makes for a beautiful environment to shoot in. Here are a few of the images I shot one night there.
