Does anyone know what time it is?
That's right: it's time to post another beautiful corvid—this one being from Ueno park—made all the more striking in black-and-white silhouette form.
If this specimen were featured in Aesop's fable, it would outsmart the fox!
Having finished a number of massive projects in the past few days, I was finally able to edit last month's photographs of the lunar crescent that I captured in Ueno Park.
By pure coincidence, my interview with Inoran of the legendary Luna Sea came out as well. So, today has been all about Japan's Moon (yes, I'm making an awkward "luna" pun).
Am I allowed to compliment myself?
Because I really LOVE this capture—everything about it—the sunlight, the lines of this Ueno Park (Tokyo) bridge, the two couples casting shadows in tandem.
In as far as documenting The City could be deliberate, this image actually is: having noticed the lines and lighting in this area, I took several photographs.
If I were to illustrate a basic Japanese-language textbook, this would be an image for te ni te wo toru (and that's as sentimental as this Russian Barbarian will ever get on this blog!).
