On a Tuesday during the late September public holidays, I met some fellow film photographers for a meandering walk through the neighborhoods along the Chuo railway line in Tokyo. This outing gave me the opportunity to finally break out the Polaroid, and also to break in a brand new pair of Vans. One of these was a good decision; I won’t say which.
In preparation for the day, I stocked up on pack film and 35mm at Bic Camera and spontaneously grabbed a roll of black and white. I haven’t shot black and white in about seven or eight years, having first made the switch to Not Shooting Anything, followed by the switch to digital. Since picking up film again, I haven’t shot one solitary roll.
I am really glad I did that day. The 38 shots on that roll are some of my favorites from my entire stay in Tokyo. I’m going to post them slowly, squeezing every moment out of Tokyo in tiny little tastes.
