Shibuya series - shi

It’s the penultimate day in my Shibuya series and for this one we’re taking a glimpse into a Japanese taxi.

I had chosen to stand/sit on a railing a little way back from the crossing itself while shooting this series as this gave me a good vantage point of people waiting as well as people crossing, and also allowed me to get some lights in the background (which have actually been quite scarce in the images so far, but tomorrow will change that).

Where I stood happened to be where taxi after taxi would stop and drop people off, so I had plenty of instances of a car pulling in and interesting people getting out.

I loved this shot as it was shortly after a rain shower and you can still see rain droplets on the windscreen of the car; I also like that the taxi driver is not quite the main focus.

It’s a bank holiday in the UK so we have Friday and Monday off work, however I’ll still be posting my usual images tomorrow and Monday. Tomorrow we’ll conclude this series, and I may start a new series on Monday if processing goes well over the weekend.

Have a great day everyone.
