The Walk Home: Ebisu, Tokyo

Schoolboy walking home through the walkway connecting Ebisu Station to the area near the Metropolitan Museum of Photography. Saw this scene unfolding about 200m ahead of me, waited a little, dropped to one knee and snapped him with the 50mm f/1.2 lens [wide open]. He didn't even see me. Something very filmic about this whole moment, like a scene from a Kurosawa movie. Intoxicating.


  1. Wonderful image, my favourite of yours – also love the cinematic feel – I agree with what you say in your comment – congrats !

  2. Nice capture of the mood. 🙂
