“Motion in One Frame”

Look far if you don’t want your head to swivel back and forth at super speeds. Shot from Shinkansen on the way to Nagoya.

Nagoya Castle Morning

Sun rising peacefully. Shot outside of Nagoya Castle early morning.

Fushimi Inari Restaurant

Moving in to clean the tables briefly after patrons leave. Shot at the top of Fushimi-Inaru, looking through one of the window panels of a little rest shop.

Kyoto Bike

I remember wearing uniforms to school back in Singapore…yeah, hard pass. Shot while roaming early morning a couple blocks away from our Kyoto Airbnb.

Arashiyama Rickshaw

The super quick rickshaw ride through Arashiyama. Shot while chasing them at the same speed.

Minoo Park Waterfall

Water forever moving. Shot at Minoo Park.

Osaka Station Train

Express train. Just don’t express yourself while riding on it. Shot at Osaka Station.

Namba Hatch Traffic

Cars and traffic aren’t too different, but note the high walls on the overhead freeway used to reduce traffic noise on the surrounding neighborhoods. Respect has a value in everything. Shot around Namba Hatch.

Shibuya Cars

Not too different from the busyness of New York. Shot in Shibuya.

Harajuku Fashion

Motion as a fashion statement. Cohesive AF, especially with the rain that day. Shot in Harajuku.

Tsukiji Market Sushi

Speed and precision while making sushi is necessary – maintaining room temperature, proper width of the cut, and balance of all the seasonings. Even if you know how the magic trick is done, doing it is the whole damn art form. Shot at Tsukiji Market.
