Hi Akira
Back to reality with work and no time

Here are a few other shots taken on the same day. Thanks again for the meeting and looking forward to catching up again next time.
Did you get a chance to listen to Trintje and amazing guitarist Leonardo Amuedo? https://open.spotify.com/album/5883OS71ULt0vnreAUe9hV?si=DlRPmQwdRNCLPTCD8VWyJg

Last picture was same corner with Nikon F501 Velvia AF35-70mm probably at 35mm in 1999

Hi, Jonathan, thank you for the bump of the thread and nice crops of the city.  The last one is an interesting addition.  FWIW, there was still the Contax Salon in the building on the right of the cylindrical San Ai building (notice the Kyocera sign).  A scene from the last part of the film days...

I did checked out "Never Can Say Goodbye" album. A fine and pleasant duet with occasionally additional instruments.  I also checked out the Wagakki Band and some K-POP whose CDs Josh was looking for.  Nice to look into something I would never know by myself.  :)

Your way of shooting without looking into the viewfineder has been popular among some sort of photographers, but watching you actually practicing that was quite inspiring.

One question: do you correct the vertical lines?  I ask this because all of your images are perfectly level.   :o :o

Hope to see you again in the near future.
