First of all. I really like your style and the way you are able to capture ordinary life of Japan. It is a vivid use of colors and striking image(s). [I clicked thorugh a few of them]
The only thing that disturbes me a bit is the composition of the picture. You seem to take something behing something? A car of tram?
And for me the black beam in the bottem and top of the picture work for me. They give me a sort of cinematic effect, like it is a shot of a movie as Babel or Lost in Translation.
But the black pole in the left side of the picture disturbs me. I keep wondering what it is and what the exact contruction is of the building. For me personally, if you would take two steps to the right, you would put more emphasis to the guy with his book and you would lose the akward components of the picute and than it would even work better.
But all in all, breathtaking picture. I think you got a eye for caputure city life.
What do you think?

Surreal! Ever since you gave me that Blade Runner reference I see your images even clearer!

Merry Christmas!

I'm more curious about what he's reading.

Maybe he's doing Sudoku?

Could be. Might just be a weekly manga. :D

I would trade jobs with this guy in a heartbeat. No stress, relaxing with a book while seeing people pass by. I do wonder why they need security guards with crimes rates being quite low in Japan. Great capture.

Hmm, you raise an interesting point. The country is safe, for sure. But perhaps if there were no guards, then some people might be tempted to commit crimes. But this is just my guess. :D Glad you like the photo! :D
