Dusk over Tokyo; from Bunkyou looking towards Shinjuku

I was at the Tokyo Dome earlier in the afternoon for the press briefing about this weekend's XTrail Jam snowboard competition, which I am at on Sunday taking photos for Nippon News. Before I met a friend later, I had some time and went up to the 25th floor of the nearby Bunkyou Civic Centre to shoot a few pics of the view. The sun had dropped but as the lights came on it was pretty good. On a clear day you can see Mount Fuji through the twin towers of the Tocho [Tokyo Metropolitan Government] building in Shinjuku.

It's when I am taking shots like this I wish I was either using 5x4 film again, on a view-camera or, for digital, something like the new D3X. But, those will have to wait for a little while yet. The 5x4 is coming in the new year.
