AROUND MEIJI, TOKYO

Last weekend we headed to Meiji shrine for the ‘Thanks Dolls’ event. That area of Tokyo is a hub of activity. The shrine was very busy. Config: Canon 5D Mark III with my 28-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8.

And in the short time that we were there, we saw two different bridal parties.

You don’t see people walking around the area smoking. They all go to designated outdoor areas like this one. There we 50 people crowded into one area, beside the main walkway. I believe it is illegal to smoke in non-designated outdoor areas. Awesome. Great way to control smoking litter (discarded cigarette ends).

A dragon fly, as close as I could get with the 70-200mm from atop the bridge.

Sometimes I marvel at the sheer volume of the crowds in Tokyo and … some of the fashion in those crowds (smile)
