Tokyo drift

By |2014-03-19T16:18:57+00:00Mar 18th, 2014|
After spending the day working out of the Google Tokyo office, I started feeling a bit of jetlag onset, so I took an hour and roamed around random streets and alleys in Roppongi with my camera gear. It was the perfect remedy to clear my head and take in my new surroundings. Despite the crazy amount of stuff here, it is not without a certain order. Nothing feels chaotic or random – there is simply a lot of everything condensed in extremely interesting ways. Thus far, though, Tokyo very much agrees with me. It truly is an amazing place.

I took this photo with my Sony A7 while testing out the new Sony FE 24-70mm/f4 lens that the kind folks at sent over.

    Brian, Can you explain what we're seeing here and what you did to make this capture?

    Hey Brian, what are your findings on the Sony SEL 2470 so far? I am also waiting patiently for delivery but off course am very curious how it is performing.

    I just hate the ushers in Roppongi
