I had a comment on my last post asking if I am actually existing in the past and sending pictures to the future, because my film photos have such an old, faded look…Hahaha. Well, It is indeed the year 2009 for me as well, thats just how the film turns out. I’m not sure why… people knowledgeable about cameras: could it just be the camera (a Canon EOS Rebel K2)? My film from seattle (on the original camera (that I dropped)) didn’t have this faded look, and I have tried film from the U.S. and Japan on this new (used) camera and both come out with rather distorted coloring. I actually think the difference between the photos I take and the reality I saw is interesting, and I’m posting completely unedited film photos on here. If you have any thoughts on this please let me know!
Near Meiji Jungu – one of my favorite temples. I love walking through this huge forest and past the big barrels of sake and wine (donations?) to get to the temple. I always feel amazed that just outside of the trees are the hectic streets of Harajuku but its so quite inside these long walkways.
We’ve got all kinds of holidays coming up in Japan. Actually today is Keio University’s birthday (founding day) so I have the day off! Next week we have Wednesday off, and then May 2-6 off as well. The long break is for “Golden Week,” which isn’t really a week, but I won’t complain. I had thought about doing some traveling but I think I’m going to stay in Tokyo and save up for bigger trips (hopefully Korea and the Philippines). Travel rates go through the roof during Golden Week since the whole nation has it off. Any suggestions for places to go/ things to do within Tokyo?
Thanks for viewing!
