Attended the Nikon Fan meeting 2018 in Shibuya, Tokyo.
Wanted to try out the new Nikon Z Camera, but the queues were too long.
So, went in, looked around, got the brochure and a sticker and went out.
Not the Dam, the Gorge.
Although it rained on us, it was an interesting experience.
From Unazuki station to Keyakidaira takes about one hour and 18 minutes. It is a lovely ride, but you have to remember that going back is the exact same route. When it rains, it is a bit less attractive.
And the rain, which stopped us from hiking around Keyakidaira station.

Traveled last week in Ishikawa-ken and Toyama-ken and also traveled to Shirakawago (in Gifu).
Rain rushed us, but was lucky enough to take some good photos.
A few photos taken at Hanazono Jinja
Seems to attract many foreigners but also Japanese tourists.
Don’t get it.
Why would people walk on the beach with a selfie stick, taking a video of themselves.
Doesn’t it seems to them too staged? What do they plan to with this video? A memory? Show their Friends?
I do take photos, but seldom of myself. A photo or a video is a good way to remind me of an encounter, a specific event. But I never considered documenting myself walking on the beach.
Generation gap, or generation vanity ?
Update May, 31, 2017
According to Ricoh service center, it will cost up to 20,000 Yen to fix this issue. To investigate further they need to ship the camera to the factory, disassemble and clean. There is a chance that the lens will require replacement. Now, do I want to pay so much money to fix this, or can I still use the camera ? Need to decide
Did not process my Ricoh GR photos for a while, and what a disappointment to find that the lens was dirty.
I am sure I can fix it with Photoshop, but I don’t like doing it.
Should take care more and check the lens more frequently.
Been following both Soko (musician) and Ninagawa Mika (Photographer) for a while, so you can guess how delighted I am that they met and work together.
Result will appear in Nero Magazine. Looking forward to it
Soko will appear in Nero Magazine soon! pic.twitter.com/rFEMBNNcHe
