I haven't posted a city pic that I've taken since 2002. That's pretty crazy. But after an extended hiatus and a few chances to try out some friends' DSLRs, I bought the bullet and got a new DSLR, a 70-200mm, and a 24-85mm. I got polarized UV filters for both lenses. No tripod yet, so that's hampered the clarity of my shots sometimes, especially when I took pics from the top of my roof during a typhoon. The typhoon's fringes only brushed Tokyo, so instead of rain we just got very brisk winds and a lot of awesome clouds.
These are the best of my first couple hundred shots, this camera is f'n complicated. Any and all advice is welcomed.
Zoomed southwest view from my office desk: Setagaya-ku and Kawasaki/Yokohama beyond. Fuji on the horizon.
Unzoomed southeast view from my office: Meguro in the foreground, the Kawasaki skyline towards the back, and the Yokohama Bay Bridge on the horizon.
Naka-Meguro and beyond.
Wide-angle from my desk. You can see the Musashi-kosugi skyline in the center-left horizon, and the Yokohama Minato-mirai skyline in the far left horizon.
Roppongi Hills and Midtown.
Azabu-juban, Toranomon, Roppongi 1-chome.
Kid in Yoyogi Park.
This is Cafe Masumiya
, off one of the far less crowded Harajuku side streets. It is awesome. These three ladies are super nice. Go there, seriously.
They make sandwiches.
Wife + sandwich, mmmm. I need to adjust my ISO better for indoor I think.
Sunset from the stairwell halfway up my building.
From my balcony. I have taken this exact shot way too many times already.
From my roof.
Roof. Golden Daibutsu in the middle. Those clouds were zipping by like a movie in fast-forward.
Roof, looking south. Same deal with the fast clouds.
