Some photos of people taking photos during the Cherry Blossom season
So many people, so many tourists.
Took some photos (with my Ricoh GR) in Nakameguro. Really prefer my Nikon for such photos, but the GR did a good job
Ricoh GR III is out and it is great. Played with it a bit at the shop and was quite impressed by the speed, features and image stabilization.
Compared “power to photo” time between Ricoh GR, II and III. GR was slot and it took a while for the camera to take the photo and then to store. While GR II was fast and GR III is slightly better .
Really want to buy the new Ricoh GR III, but as I was thinking about it I realized that I don’t use my Ricoh GR enough and cannot justify to myself buying another camera.
So, planning to use the GR more. Take cameras, improve my “SNAP” technique and street photography. If I use it enough and hit the point that the Technology limits me (stabilization, speed), I may buy the GR III
Just hanged in my office a print of a photo taken with Contax T3, B&W film. Used Color printing as wanted to see the result fast.
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 ?
