Urban Composition | Tokyo, 2011 The sight before me was a stark reminder of the metropolis I was in, a creature of steel and glass, meshed together to form something at once beautiful, at once terrifying, a symbol of man’s desire to dominate his environment. This photo is from an earlier trip to Tokyo in the summer of 2011, see photos of my most recent winter trip here.
Baseball practice at Ueno Park | Tokyo, Japan 2011 Probably the most popular sport in Japan, baseball is clearly a cultural import. Introduced in 1872 by Horace Wilson, it has remained popular ever since. See my other photos of Japan!
Children out on excursion | Ueno, Tokyo 2011 With a skip in their step and hands joined, a rowdy rabble of school children in yellow hats passed by, on their way to Ueno Zoo, their teacher at the back like a shepherd watching over his flock of noisy sheep. See the rest of my photos from Japan!
