I hope some of you are appreciating, because this one took LONG :P
We have a new connection, but it is slower (at least on my computer) and just the uploading took like 45 minutes.

So it was sunday and we went to have a little picnic in Meiji Jingu. We passed through Yoyogi park, which was literally packed with people. So cool! Young people performing and playing and just chilling out. Where we sat down it was more families and peaceful though. It was my favorite day of the whole trip I think.

Also some photos from a garden in Harajuku there at the end :)

well we didn't sit down at yoyogi, we just passed through. the place we sat down at was past meji jingu and it was a lot more peaceful :)

i'm sure there was space for us at yoyogi too though. i guess maybe there are just some sought after ones....

Very pretty. The bikes and the gallery are standouts for me, the textures of the metal was awesome. And I love the ones with you in them of course...and it's fun to play "spot the gaigan" with pics of your friends.

Spot the gaigan?

oh yeah, now i'm really contented. My cookies became delicious once again. Soft, crumbly and fragile, buttered with a delicate orange flavour, not too sweet. Fantastic! My apartment smells like a bakery. ---- ok, you may say "Stop, that's my blog", haha Sorry ^^ it must shout out! But it's a nice kind of satisfaction when things you begun find an very good end. isn't it? Like your funny videos.... know what i mean? Or a good shot.

The first pic tell you lie but the next say you don't! Crazy people. I remember a walk through the Central Parc NY - it was just the same. The pic with laughing girl shows a small soundsystem - a dj has played some stuff? So many people. Unbelievable! Was there no other green palce in town? Or was it a holiday? Just as all the people cannot wait springtime. So many physiognomies (but not so many in the world - i always see some where i think, oh isn't that neighbor X or friend Y? more or less the same figure with the same hair, face etc. And that's in every city or country i've been. Even in Mongolia or - in this case - in Japan! Amasing. Have you noticed that, too? It seems that cherry blossoms are very significant in Japan. An important mythological sign of new life and power. (the woman photographing her son is great.) This parc must be a really nice place... I love chinese and japanese art of landscaping. Thanks a lot for the photos. On the last photo you look so sceptical - no fear, you looks always good. :) PS: don't do too much sport! You will ending like those monsterbabies haha --sorry Markus, your photos are obviously very inspiring. no message the next 5 days, promise der olafson

You are babbling! :P

There are several large parks and green areas in Tokyo. Apparantly Japanese are big on large public spaces :) I was told it was normal for that many people to be in Yoyogi on the weekends, but I guess Sakura and Spring contributed as well...

I loved these a lot, children are the best photo subjects. My favorite :> And that koi one is great. And Harajuku looks amazing.

I really liked Harajuku! A lot :)

I guess there is the stuff you expect with the crowdy shopping street and all, but I loved the other little streets here and there even more. Cool atmosphere :)

japanese fashion is absolutely ridiculous. i like the chick rocking the giant petticoat underneath her picnic blanket-inspired frock.
28th-May-2008 09:23 am (UTC)
well they all don't dress like that :p

i really love the clothes boys there wear. it's exactly the kind of clothes i like to wear myself :)

I don't care so much about your technique and all that jazz, but what size of lenses do you use?
28th-May-2008 09:27 am (UTC)
I guess most of these are taken with the 75-300 mm one. I have one other 18-55 and one fixed at 55 :)
