You can imagine the (first world problems appropriate) struggle of deciding whether to capture something digitally, on film or on video, especially when you’re no expert at any of them. This is especially prevalent when you have all three options available to you and you’re walking through the streets of Tokyo where everything is enviably photogenic. But there’s something about film that has a very distinct ‘mating call’ when it comes to its moments of capture. I don’t know how else to explain it but i hope you can see a different side of Tokyo through the following photos…if not then never mind and i hope you enjoy them anyway.
