Stroll in Shinjuku

A friend came to visit Tokyo in late May and we took a stroll in Shinjuku. He shot film (with a Leica) and I shot with my Sony A7II. You could tell the difference between him—an experience photographer composing and watching a scene—and me—an amateur trying the old “spray and pray” technique. I think I got a few good shots. I always feel this pressure to show people a great time in Tokyo because people tend to have high expectations, but the best afternoons are always the ones where everyone kind of melts into the neighborhood and nothing really remarkable happens. This way, you’re able to just enjoy the city as it really is, as well as your company.
