Photographer's Note

Harajuku, Tokyo is a photographers haven. I wasn't expecting it as we just came across it (and then I learned about it later). Every Sunday, youthful people go to the Harajuku district and work on eachother's makeup and outfits- and then just hang out all day while people flock to take their photographs. I found it all pretty strange- at first I thought it was rude that so many people were pushing their way in to take these peoples' photos. I even tried asking one person if it was ok to take their photo, and they just ignored me. So eventually I just led myself to believe that these people were here to be seen by the public, and started shooting. Still though, I was a non-invasive distance away with my 80-400mm lens (I'm too shy). I really liked this girl's contacts she was wearing. The girl sitting next to her was also very creative- she had her face partly covered with small pieces of tin foil.
It's a great place to practice people shots- even if you are shy like me!
