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
I love this photo so much.
The seriousness of the woman photographer, the smug smile of the man with her and the blurred image in the background.
The blurred image belongs to a girl who was walking by herself with a lost look on her face. Fits this photo very well.
As I was walking around Tamagawa river taking photos, bumped into this group of Students (?) taking photos and having fun.
Big smiles, a lot of passion.
Have no idea how they captured me.
This Nishi Shinjuku building is about to be demolished.
Too bad as another part of history will disappear
Wanted a quality camera for street photography.
Mirrorless, Ricoh GR II, Other…
And then decided to purchase the Ricoh GR, a bit less features than GR II, no WiFi. But much cheaper.
I carry it with me in my bag and expect to take photos (almost) every day.
First photo is the Shinjuku “installation”. It is an area which always has interesting commercials, events.
Photo is not that good; so need to improve the way I use the camera, angles, colours.
Still a lot to learn
A photo I took in Shinjuku; quite confusing.
Escalator going up or down ?
I find it quite difficult taking photos while on family trips.
No time to relax, to set the camera as I want to, to wait for the right light, right moment.
Nevertheless, two photos from the weekend:
Second one, Long exposure, not Tripod. Was quite surprised it turned out ok. (not very good though)
