Gion at night by jyoujo Gion at night by jyoujo
this deviation is more for the ones who
have already been in Japan,actually Kyoto .
i was looking into a friends gallery and it was very nice
to see all the places i saw and have been ,
so i kind felt like i should upload something that
people could remember when they were here or ,
see how it is actually when you are here .
As you can see . People are everywhere ,
tourist , but , if you are thinking mostly foreign ,
you are wrong .
They are just people from all over Japan to see how
Kyoto is magnificent at night.
indeed it is ♡ .

I feel like I'm looking through a time lapse when I see this picture...living in the middle of America, all the streets are wide and never very crowded, and I get a little claustrophobic when I drive down older streets that are even a little bit closer together. It's something about the angle of the shot, the perspective, about the closeness of /everything/ in this picture, that makes me feel like something is out of place. Like there's an element of history in it, that speaks to me very plainly.

I'm always nervous attempting to comment on your work, because I never feel like I can say what I mean, but here I went and tried all the same.

Thank you so much for sharing. Beautiful, as always. ~Drake

I love how it looks like the buildings curve inward a little... makes the street look like a tunnel.

I want to go to Japan someday. All your pictures of all the lovely things there are inspiring. :aww:

It looks cold. D: But at the same time, there are so many people that it might be warm. I like the fish-eye cam.

I had one of the best nights of my life experiencing the culture of Japan at Gion in September last year. Thank you for uploading this gorgeous image- it reminds me of why I really want to go back there and experience it again! Some of those buildings have turned out beautifully in this image :) I took one my most favourite shots in Gion actually... Reminds me that I must go through them again!

even though this is not what you usually do, i still find it very nice. I like how simple it is but how it is special in angle and in the warped perspective. 夢みたいだ〜
