HOLGA - Tokyo - Shinjuku

This Tokyo trip my favorite exit from Shinjuku Station was the Southern Terrace. In terms of passengers per day this is one of the busiest stations in the world and I felt I had figured out one very very very small part of it....maybe 1/20 of its 200 exits. The Southern Terrace exits onto a walkway I have written about before. I like it because the walkway is very wide, open and I don't feel claustrophobic as I walk past tall buildings, Krispy Kreme, Starbucks and then over a bridge which goes over a multitude of train tracks to Takashimaya Shopping Center and Kinokuniya Bookstore. I used Velvia Fujichrome which is a slide film that I had processed as if it were regular film. Thus the intense colors.

Tall buildings and train tracks. Runon or overlap photo.

More tall buildings and some leaves shot at another location. A technique one can do with a Holga camera is take a photo at one location advance 1/2 to the next photo and shoot it at a different place. Runon or overlap photo.

The "different place" from the above photo. A favorite house in a quiet Kita-Shinjuku neighborhood.
