Japan-From The Eye Of The Fish

Taking a break from my regular style, I will be uploading documentary style photography for a while from my trip to Japan last summer.

Osaka, Japan

In Japan people wear yukata only on special occasions, like for festivals, or for work. They might be working in a Japanese classical style bar/restaurant. She seems like going to work as her regular clothing is probably inside the white bag which she will wear after she is done and go to a different place for drinking with friends herself. Most of the time, after work , Japanese go to an Izakaya to socialize and drink. Of course the bicycles along the roads are a common sight . Most Japanese use bicycles as transportation, and they are very good at it, rushing through crowds of people without touching or hitting anyone in narrow streets.

Hello man, could I ask for the original file ? For a personal use. Japan lover here and I love the fish eyed style that you put on this, it would fit perfectly on my desktop ^^ !

I would totally understand a negative answer of course. I'm a photographer myself and it would be difficult for me to let someone take one of my file.

I like the shot especially because it's in the fisheye effect =)

it's as if she found herself "ejected" from a far, magic world into the future...
