These are the very first photographs that I uploaded to the Internet, back in November 2007–when Tokyo was bidding to host the 2016 (or 2012?) Olympics. They show a couple of PR tableaux placed at Kokuritsu-kyogijo station, the closest stop to the National Stadium.
Spotted in the neighborhood Lawson convenience store. They eventually go down in price to 100 yen each.
Ahhh, the very, very start of summer. It’s a pleasure just to watch the world.

My final image from 2009 is a photo taken on the platform of Sendagaya Station. It’s the closest station to my house, and I am always surpised at how many wonderful scenes — to my eyes, at least — have presented themselves there.
Although there isn’t really anything out of the ordinary to the place, it always reminds me that beauty can happen anywhere. As long as we’re on look-out, and even when we’re not. Cheers, and a Happy New Year to all.
