Kanda-Jimbocho, Tokyo, July 10, 2004

Kanda-Jimbocho, Tokyo, July 10, 2004. Leica M6, CV 35mm f/2.5 P, Konica Pan 400

Here’s a new series shot in Tokyo’s Kanda-Jimbocho, often called the largest book market in the world due to the high concentration of new and secondhand bookstores one can find there (135-plus stores). Wasn’t feeling very engaged when shooting these, hence the series’ title. Perhaps I’ve been too engaged in shooting of late. Sometimes it’s good to relax a bit.

I previously wrote about this area of Tokyo here.

    Did you pick up a Leica?

  3. Kurt says:

    uh, yeah Mark I did, though “pick up” is probably not the verb Naoko would use 🙂

  4. mark says:

    I imagine Naoko is using, “Squandered life savings and Kaika’s College fund” 😉

    Remind me to get one of those doggoned dome hats next time I’m in Tokyo (Sept) — will at least hide my blond head a bit

    I like Kanda-Jimbocho too ( http://www.botzilla.com/photo/J2003/J2003-74.html ) — great for us superficial foreign photographers, heh.
