I love the yellow and blues in this one; they're so striking!  And the light turquoise also adds wonderfully to the color palette as well.  Nice action shot, too :)

Yes, but in this case I cheated a bit. I took a few photos there and checked in camera. Then I stood very still holding the camera the same way and waited for some one interesting to come by. I was there for about 10 minutes. Strictly speaking, I didn't need to shoot from the hip in this case. I could have crouched down and looked through the viewfinder. But I took this photo shortly after I start hip shooting and I wanted to practice different techniques as much as possible.

Currently, I try not to shoot from the hip too much. It's very useful when the perfect moment appears and you don't even have time to bring the camera up to your eye. It's also useful if I don't want someone to notice me. But currently I'm working on being more brave in taking photos from up close and while people are looking right at me.

Well that's not cheating, but good preparation, right? :)
Gives me some ideas :lol:

And how does that work out, your bravery? Don't people get mad or irritated with you? Here in the Netherlands, people are very keen on protecting their privacy, even in public, and they might get angry when their photo is taken. Not always, though, sometimes they don't care or even like it. But it has happened a few times to me, that, when noticing that I took their pic, people demanded that I would delete their pic. Which, in such cases, I usually do without problem... :)

Well, people in Japan tend to be pretty non-confrontational. So they never complain about having their photo taken, though in some cases they might not like it. In general, I try not to get in anyone's face, and I try to always smile and look like a dumb tourist. This makes me less creepy and more silly looking. I admit that I am lucky to live in a culture that's rather tolerant of photography. Then again, I shot in Sydney last year for a week and had no problems as well. I'll be in Chicago next week, so we'll see how people in the city tolerate my presence. :D

You know what, there may be more tolerance for Japanese tourists making pics (certainly here in the Netherlands, maybe in other places too) :giggle:

Oh, yeah, this too is one 'seen before' - and again a great effect of the contrasting blue-yellow colours, and the light... Love the action/ movement in this one too. And it's a great example of an interesting shot from the back! :heart:

So good! Yellow woman on blue, blue man on yellow ;-)

I would have still been deciding whether I can be bothered or not to get my camera out of my bag while she was disappearing from view.

You know I didn't myself realize the yin-yang like quality of the two characters! Thanks for pointing that out! :D As for getting the shot: I just really loved the quality of the light in this scene. So I posted up against one of those giant round columns, set my focus to 5m and waited. I took a few photos but once this girl showed up in her yellow dress I knew I was done. Sometimes you just have to sit and wait for a good scene! :D
