I WALKED A TOKYO ALLEY

The other day I wanted to see something different, so I walked a different way home. The best sight was this wall, covered in flowers; Canon 5D Mark III with 50mm f/1.2 in hand.

Up close.

I made a quick stop to pick up some sparkling sake at this shop. I have become a big fan of sparkling sake over the last couple weeks. It is a very light summer drink and perfect for sitting out on a deck or in a backyard with a low alcohol content (5%ish).

Reminds me of the wonderful sparkling cider that we happened across in Normandy.

To get to the cider I had to walk down this stairwell which was a case of the “old” and the “new”. On one side was a gleaming metal wall (protecting a construction site), on the other an old wall with a very old stone stairwell. It wasn’t until afterwards that I noticed the mirror at the top … in case you were walking around the corner too fast (smile).

One more old and new.

An interesting stroll. Need to do that more often.

Thanks for dropping by.

    • I cannot agree more. Drinking a lot of it, light and refreshing. I get mine from Meida-ya across from Hiroo station now. It is in a green bottle (roughly 500m) and 700 yen. According to my wife’s friend it is all organic. Highly recommend trying it.
