Good morning, Tokyo

One of the advantages to my body clock being out of whack is waking up feeling like a million bucks at 4:30AM. If only I could sustain that beyond this trip. :)

I took this photo about an hour ago from my hotel window here in Roppongi. I was so exhausted last night that I didn’t even bother to check my compass or The Photographer’s Ephemeris to see where the sun would rise, so you could imagine my happiness when I saw that yellow ball pop up right alongside the Tokyo Tower. I’ve been going back to the window every 15 minutes or so and have been amazed at how dramatically the landscape changes. We now have clouds coming through! :)

I took this with my Sony A7 and Nicole‘s Canon 70-200/f4 through the hotel window. I had use my black hoodie as a cover for me and the camera, removing any unwanted glare. Thankfully, the windows are freaking spotless!

I’m looking forward to visiting the Tokyo office soon – it’s the second international office I’ve been to so far and am hoping to increase that number to three with the Sydney office. So with that, even though it’s Tuesday here, my mind is still on Monday (which I lose somewhere in between), so have a great week, everyone!
