Was up in Aoyama yesterday with a student. Crazy crowds there taking pics of the ginko trees but this bench qwas empty and whilst all the locals were brushing the leaves off the benches to sit down, I was snappin them. Got some funny looks... the sort of 'whats so interesting about a bench' as all of the locals were shooting the big picture and each other under the trees.
As one of my fave pics by Ernst Haas is that of a solitary momiji leaf on a bench in Kyoto, I coult help thinking of him when I shot this.
