Cosmos flowers by the Keihin Canal, Tokyo

I shot this picture exactly two years ago today: Nov.7th, 2010. It's from my favourite local, neighbourhood place to relax... down by the Keihin Canal in Samezu, Shinagawa-ku. Also a favourite place to shoot these cosmos flowers. The canal makes a lovely backdrop and at day's end the light is just dreamy, especially at this time of year.

Here's another shot I made there, which became very popular online. Catchy colours, I guess. I love orange too. Makes me feel alive.

Gear for both shots
Mamiya 645AF-Dii
Mamiya 80mm f/1.9
ZD digital back
