My favourites are Peace, Celebrating and Techies! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 29, 2019 • 8:45 am Thanks so much, Michael. So glad you enjoyed this set. The street photography in Japan was a thrill. 😊 Reply ↓ mdhoffmannphoto May 29, 2019 • 9:08 am This reminds me of my trip to Japan at age 15. My Boy Scout troop sent me to the 13th World Jamboree in 1971. We camped at the base of Mt. Fuiji with 24,000 other boys from all over the world. I bought myself a Kodak Instamatic Camera – that’s all I could afford! We even had a bit of a typhoon and had to be evacuated to nearby Osaka. Lol! I gave my first slide show when I returned. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 29, 2019 • 11:12 am What a wonderful memory, Michael! Shows how life-changing childhood experiences are. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jeff Bell May 2, 2019 • 2:56 am So many great photos in this set. Red umbrella is probably my favorite but Peace is surreal. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 2, 2019 • 8:11 am Thanks so much, Jeff. The street photography was such fun in Japan. As I’m sure you know. Glad you enjoyed. 🤗 Reply ↓ fotografiemijnlangleven November 27, 2018 • 6:31 am Very nice Japan pictures ! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 31, 2018 • 6:58 pm Thanks very much, Dirk.

Young Jr. November 14, 2018 • 9:49 am Authentic and beautifully composed street photography! My favs are “crew”, “conductor” and “kitty” compositions. Love the overhead composition too. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 15, 2018 • 5:50 pm Thank you, C.S. What a wonderful country to wander and photograph. Happy you enjoyed this series. 🙂 Reply ↓ stadtauge November 13, 2018 • 11:26 pm Just wwwwwoooowwwww! Wunderful! Let´s fly to Japan! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 18, 2018 • 8:24 am Thank you, Daniel! Glad you like them….you need to go! 😄 Reply ↓ belindagroverphotography November 13, 2018 • 7:25 pm Wonderful portraits Jane! Fascinating introduction to the country and its people. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 13, 2018 • 7:26 pm Thanks, Belinda. Such fun to photograph. 😁 Reply ↓ Jay November 13, 2018 • 3:01 pm The “crew” one reminds me of Wes Anderson! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 13, 2018 • 5:36 pm Yes! Totally, Jay. You nailed it. 😄 I died when I saw them line up like that. Reply ↓ Manja Mexi Movie November 12, 2018 • 1:03 pm Gorgeous and heartfelt. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 13, 2018 • 12:06 pm Thanks so much, Manja. Very interesting time in Japan. Glad you enjoyed. Reply ↓ pattimoed November 11, 2018 • 4:15 pm What a wonderful gallery of people, Jane! Your shots really help me understand the people and places better. I haven’t been to Japan yet, but hope to go! Reply ↓ thirdeyemom November 11, 2018 • 6:27 am Amazing as always Jane! Fabulous shots. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 13, 2018 • 12:08 pm Thanks, Nicole. Happy your well-trained eye enjoyed them. 😉 Reply ↓ #BryntinsBLT: Big Loud Twit – O4FS November 10, 2018 • 2:36 am Jane Lurie November 10, 2018 • 12:24 pm Thanks for sharing! Reply ↓ Buster Baum November 10, 2018 • 2:09 am “Don’t tell me what you know, tell me where you’ve traveled” most certainly applies. Thanks once again. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 10, 2018 • 4:23 pm Thank you so much, Bob. I really appreciate your reactions to my photos. Japan is amazing. 🙂 Reply ↓ bluebrightly November 9, 2018 • 2:02 pm Wonderful images, Jane! What’s with that train crew? Bizarre! That was one terrific moment to catch. I like the Neighborhood Walk photo, too, for the expression in her face, really her whole body. And Peace – love the symmetry. The Fugifilm is a great street camera, isn’t it? (No, I don’t have one, I just read about them!) You did it justice. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 10, 2018 • 4:26 pm Thank you, Lynn! I was thrilled to catch that train crew…actually, it wasn’t too difficult since they were lined up well ahead of the train arrival. 😁 Great photo opps throughout the trip and the Fuji worked very well for street with its smaller and lighter size– much stealthier than my Nikon– so glad you like them. Reply ↓ zlsconsulting November 9, 2018 • 10:41 am Amazing pictures. Japan is really n amazing place . Can’t wait to bring the family back in the future. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 9, 2018 • 10:48 am Hi ZLS, Glad you enjoyed these, thank you. I hope we go back again sometime, too. Loved every minute. Reply ↓ joshi daniel November 9, 2018 • 7:07 am Loved this series 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 9, 2018 • 8:29 am Thank you, Joshi. That means a lot. 🙂 Reply ↓ Abrie Joubert November 8, 2018 • 2:00 pm Toss up between red umbrella and Tori gate. I like that you got thee crowd grouped contrasted with the yellow(ish) pillars and beams. And you must be excellent at telling Japanese jokes(first photo) . The Japanese joke jester Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 9, 2018 • 8:31 am Hi Abrie, I had them laughing! Happy you like those shots. Torii Gate is quite a scene. Thanks so much and hope all is well with you. Reply ↓ Sagittarius Viking November 8, 2018 • 1:31 pm Marvelous captures Jane! I loved this post very much. People are interesting, and challenging to photograph. There’s so much life in your photos. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 9, 2018 • 8:32 am Thank you, Maria. Street photography really is a fun challenge. Pleased you enjoyed this collection- they were exciting to find. Reply ↓ Amanda Ricks November 8, 2018 • 12:02 pm Hi, Jane, I loved this post so much I reblogged it on Surprising Lives and added a few comments. This is the link; https://surprisinglives.net/2018/11/08/japan-people-culture-contrasts/ Have a great day. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 8, 2018 • 1:19 pm Thanks so much for sharing, Amanda. Happy you enjoyed it. 🙂 Reply ↓ Amanda Ricks November 9, 2018 • 2:41 pm My pleasure Jane. Reply ↓ Japan; Graceful Contrasts Of Tech And Tradition. | Surprising Lives November 8, 2018 • 11:58 am Bespoke Traveler November 7, 2018 • 5:02 pm Greatly enjoyed your compositions in “Peace” and “The Crew Awaits.” Reply ↓ David November 7, 2018 • 1:53 pm They perfected the blending of technology with the traditional … along with “Hello Kitty” and “Maneki Neko San”. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 7, 2018 • 7:58 pm Thanks, David. I found that amusing. Such fun to explore. BTW, had to look that one up…didn’t know that’s what the waving cats are called. So smart. 🙂 Reply ↓ Amanda Ricks November 6, 2018 • 12:13 pm Wow, I love the contrasts that you caught both in your shots as well as in the Japanese culture. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:30 pm Thank you, Amanda. There was a push/pull of modern and traditional. The graciousness of the people is stunning and wonderful. Reply ↓ Amanda Ricks November 6, 2018 • 8:27 pm Such a fascinating country and people. Reply ↓ dorannrule November 6, 2018 • 8:14 am They are all happily exciting but I love “Celebrating” – the one with the beautiful 2 children the best. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:26 pm Thank you, Dor. There was a wonderful children’s day at one of the shrines and there were many families in traditional kimonos celebrating. Such fun to see. Reply ↓ arv! November 6, 2018 • 1:15 am I love your captures of everyday life in Japan, Jane! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:23 pm Thank you very much, Arv. This type of photography is very exciting to do. Glad you enjoyed! Reply ↓ arv! November 7, 2018 • 1:37 am How is your experience with X-T2 vis a vis DSLR that you were using? Reply ↓ Eliza Waters November 5, 2018 • 4:45 pm Love seeing the world through your lens, Jane. Marvelous! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:21 pm Thank you, Eliza!

Japan was absolutely marvelous! 🙂 Reply ↓ april kanew November 5, 2018 • 12:52 pm fabulous shots….just loving ‘happy’….so much FUN😜 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:21 pm Thanks so much, April. That group was thrilled when I asked to take their photo. 🙂 Reply ↓ Leya November 5, 2018 • 11:57 am Love them all. And the umbrella. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:15 pm Thanks so much, Ann-Christine. Much appreciated. 🙂 Reply ↓ Leya November 7, 2018 • 12:54 pm ♥ Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra November 5, 2018 • 7:50 am The train conductor and the red umbrella photos are my favorites this week, Jane. I can see a man who is committed to his profession and an aerial photo that could be classed as Modern Art. Outstanding entries. Ω Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:14 pm Thanks so much, Allan. That means a lot! Japan was truly fascinating and it was wonderful to experience the gracious culture. Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra November 7, 2018 • 7:20 am What a wonderful experience for you. Thanks for sharing these photos with us. Ω Reply ↓ Suzanne et Pierre November 5, 2018 • 6:27 am Very nice collection of street pictures. (Suzanne) Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:13 pm Thank you very much, Suzanne. Have you been to Japan in your travels? It was a marvelous trip all around. Reply ↓ Suzanne et Pierre November 7, 2018 • 6:31 am We have yet to make it to Japan. It is fairly high on the list but we have a few constraints right now that doesn’t allow us to go that far. But we know we will make it eventually. I did travel a bit through your pictures. Reply ↓ camerapacker November 5, 2018 • 5:43 am I particyularly like the Red Umbrella. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:12 pm Thanks, Bruce. That seems to be a winner. I was obsessed with the overheads when it started raining. You may see more… 🙂 Reply ↓ Heyjude November 5, 2018 • 5:39 am So much the same, so much different. You have a wonderful eye for detail (I might have said that a few times before) and quirky images. Love the red umbrella! Well spotted. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:08 pm Thank you, Jude. And, you get my humor, too, which I really appreciate. 🙂 Reply ↓ Ellen Denkers November 5, 2018 • 4:57 am Great photo’s from a crowdy place, still you catched an quited moment with the train conductor. love this photo because of the colors, lines, and textures. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:06 pm Hi Ellen, Thank you so much. I loved the trains…so many great lines and colors. (Plus they were super fast.) Japan was wonderful to explore. Reply ↓ K. Joseph November 5, 2018 • 4:46 am Wonderful shots! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:00 pm Thank you very much, K. Glad you enjoyed them! Reply ↓ Jane Iwan November 5, 2018 • 4:06 am Love seeing Japan through your creative lens Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:00 pm Thank you, Jane. We had a marvelous time and it was such fun to photograph there. Reply ↓ Moazzam Shaikh November 5, 2018 • 3:19 am Wow! While viewing these photos, I felt like I am present at those places. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:58 pm What a wonderful compliment, Moazzam. It’s what I hope for when people view my images. Thanks very much. Reply ↓ Ali November 5, 2018 • 2:47 am I love your diverse collection of images. There are some that are recognisable in any setting, like with the schoolgirls, in which we see our own lives. And there are those that are so obviously of a place, like ‘Celebrating’ and ‘The Crew Awaits’. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:54 pm Thank you, Ali, for your astute comment. I found the contrasts fascinating and such fun to hunt for interesting photographs. Happy you enjoyed these. Reply ↓ Sue November 5, 2018 • 1:48 am Love the rushing commuters in myth of tomorrow, and that red umbrella! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:50 pm Thanks so much, Sue. I thought that would be a cool contrast. That mural has been compared to Picasso’s Guernica. Reply ↓ Sue November 7, 2018 • 12:57 am I can sort-of see why… Reply ↓ harrienijland November 5, 2018 • 1:21 am Yep, great series! 🙂 Thanks for sharing. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:47 pm Thanks very much, Harrie. Happy you enjoyed them. 🙂 Reply ↓ Tina Schell November 4, 2018 • 10:39 pm Great set Jane. Love the kids especially. Your love for little ones always shines through. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:46 pm Thanks, Tina. We lucked out with Sunday children’s celebrations at the shrines. Lots of beautiful kids and kimonos. Glad you enjoyed them. Reply ↓ PEPIX November 4, 2018 • 10:16 pm In Tokio with a Fuji-Camara 🙂 Great Images…the red umbrella is wonderful! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:06 pm Exactly, Petra! Haha. We even passed a big Fujifilm headquarters there. Glad you enjoyed the images…thank you! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:40 pm Hi Petra, Ha! Yes, so perfect. I even saw one of the Fuji headquarters. Glad you enjoyed the images, thank you- I had a marvelous time making them. Reply ↓ rabirius November 4, 2018 • 10:11 pm Amazing Street scenes. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:04 pm Thanks so much, Rabirius. It is an exciting place to wander and photograph. 🙂 Reply ↓ Gunta November 4, 2018 • 9:56 pm Love the vibes you caught here. As usual you’ve made it tough to pick a favorite, but I think I’ll go with the red umbrella. Looks like you had a great time! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:04 pm Thank you, Gunta. I was rather obsessed with those umbrellas on one of the only rainy days. 🙂 It was a fantastic trip all around. Reply ↓ pommepal November 4, 2018 • 8:23 pm Well seen love the vibrant colours Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:03 pm Thank you, Pauline. What a beautiful country and people. Reply ↓ www.corneliaweber-photography.com November 4, 2018 • 8:08 pm I love, love your Japan collection, Jane. Japan is on my travel list since I was very young. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:02 pm Thank you, Cornelia. So glad you like these. It was a wonderful trip full of fascinating people, places and delicious food. I hope you visit soon and experience the gracious culture. Reply ↓ Ascamner November 4, 2018 • 7:46 pm The photographs are wonderful as usual. Cordially Anne Camner > Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 5:00 pm Thanks very much, Anne. So happy you enjoyed them. Great to hear from you. Reply ↓ T Ibara Photo November 4, 2018 • 7:43 pm Hello Jane, These are beautiful images. I’m glad you enjoyed visiting some areas of my country 🙂 Regarding some of the “close-up” images — did you ask the subjects for permission to take their photo? Many Japanese are sensitive to privacy (especially with children and minors), and often become frustrated when tourists snap photos and share publicly without their knowledge. Unfortunately, many cannot express their feelings in English, hence, many visitors misinterpret to say it’s “OK” to take photos. I hope you don’t get offended. I enjoy your photography very much. Which is why I wanted to offer my personal thoughts as a Japanese. Best wishes, Takami Reply ↓ T Ibara Photo November 4, 2018 • 7:50 pm PS: It’s considered to be perfectly OK to take photos of public officials (for example: the policeman in your second photo “Peace” – a wonderful shot!) Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:42 pm Thank you, Takami. The policeman was a really fun scene to see and photograph! 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 6:41 pm Hi Takami, Thank you for your terrific comment. I share your concerns. In most cases, I am shooting stealthily, however, in the images, Happy and Celebrating, I asked for permission and it seemed to me to be clearly granted. Your advice about misinterpreting the response is a good one and I hope that I didn’t overstep bounds. I am not offended at all, and appreciate you sharing your thoughts. I found your country to be magnificent and the Japanese people I encountered gracious and friendly. And your cuisine delicious. I loved every minute. Reply ↓ T Ibara Photo November 8, 2018 • 1:20 am Hi Jane, thanks much for your reply – much appreciated. Ah, now I understand that you had asked for permission. Then, everything is fine 🙂 I’m glad you am not offended (I didn’t want to give the impression you had overstepped bounds) and that you enjoyed your time here. As you know there are many different views of Japan, and do hope you can see more of them soon! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 8, 2018 • 8:08 am Thank you, Takami! I hope we visit again sometime in the near future. 🙂 Reply ↓ sharonbuehler November 4, 2018 • 7:26 pm Good timing with the one red umbrella amidst the black and white! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 4:59 pm Thanks so much, Sharon! Reply ↓ petergreyphotography November 4, 2018 • 7:15 pm Wonderful again! The picture ‘celebrating’ and most of all the umbrella’s are my favorites. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 4:57 pm Thank you, Peter. I hit a great day at one of the big temples…families celebrating their children. And I sure was happy when we had one afternoon of rain. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed. Reply ↓ John Kotz November 4, 2018 • 6:43 pm Great images. Really like this kind of photograph and you do it so well. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 4:55 pm Thanks so much, Jack. That means a lot. Reply ↓ oneowner November 4, 2018 • 6:40 pm These great images highlight what a talent you have for graphic design within each photo. Nice work, Jane! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 4:54 pm Thank you so much, Ken, for your wonderful compliment. Much appreciated. Reply ↓ robert20359 November 4, 2018 • 5:57 pm hi jane wonderful, interesting and variable pictures my favorit is the 2nd, 4th and 14th. greetings robert Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 4:50 pm Thank you, Robert. You enjoy images that are a bit more graphic, too. Glad you like them…it was a marvelous place to explore. Reply ↓ Mary Lynn November 4, 2018 • 5:46 pm You have such a wonderful eye. Love the adorable children! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 4:49 pm Thank you, ML. I lucked out that there was a children’s celebration at one of the shrines we visited. Many beautiful kimonos and faces! Reply ↓ Joe November 4, 2018 • 5:14 pm Beautiful collection of images Jane 🙂 It looks incredibly colorful over there. I think you were right when you said I wold love it. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 4:44 pm Hi Joe, It’s a vibrant place, certainly with its people, but also for the fascinating shrines, temples and architecture. The food is also superb! Glad you enjoyed these street images…such fun to find. Reply ↓ Prior... November 4, 2018 • 4:51 pm Sometimes when I see posts like this I wonder how photographers grabbed these shots! Like the crew in line – did you arrange them blue pink blue pink! And the guy (2nd from right) looks like he is holding a tool my friend uses called a fascia blaster (by Ashley Black) And like the “hello diversity” But also the “everyday people” vibe Laughed at the “techies” one and just some interesting shots here – Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 4:42 pm Hi Yvette, Thanks so much for your enthusiastic reaction. I had such fun photographing different people on the streets. The pink, blue crew was simply a gift. The trains run so efficiently in Japan that the cleaning crews get in and out when the train stops…and this is how they line up! The others are a combination of luck and asking permission. Glad you enjoyed this collection. 🙂 Reply ↓ Prior... November 7, 2018 • 9:28 am that is cool that they line up like that. and that photo reminded me of so many things (could be a good writing prompt). — the other thing about this post – is that I went to Tina’s lens-artist 18 post right afterwards and I was feeling a sense of awe with the way the two posts had some commonalities. I think you two even use the same cameras (Fuji) either way – I was going to ask both of you if I could post about the two of them – just a little post on my blog – Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 7, 2018 • 3:14 pm That’s funny. You know we are good friends, don’t you? We lived in the same town for many years and have traveled together. 😃 Happy for you to do a writing prompt. And yes, I got Tina in the Fuji bandwagon after we were both Nikon shooters for years. Reply ↓ Prior... November 7, 2018 • 9:10 pm Well I knew you were friends but had no idea such tight pals in real Life – How cool Jane Lurie November 7, 2018 • 10:32 pm We live on opposite coasts now…. Prior... November 7, 2018 • 11:18 pm Yeah – I knew you were west coast (right?) Jane Lurie November 8, 2018 • 8:08 am Yes. 🙂 saymber November 4, 2018 • 4:49 pm Beautiful! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 9:54 am Thank you so much, Saymber. 🙂 Reply ↓ Alison and Don November 4, 2018 • 4:39 pm What a fabulous collection of images. Every one says Japan! The first two and ice cream time are my faves. Alison Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 9:47 am Thank you, Alison. The city streets were so exciting to photograph. Happy you enjoyed these images coming from your well traveled eye! 🙂 Reply ↓ Linda Wyatt November 4, 2018 • 4:28 pm Love that red umbrella…. great crosssection of so many people! Terrific! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 9:43 am Thanks so much, Linda. I was happy for some rain one day… the people on the streets were wonderful. Reply ↓ Camille November 4, 2018 • 4:08 pm fun to see Japan (and your trip adventures)thru your lens (and eyes) Love the people, the kids are darling, and the red umbrella scene Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 9:42 am Thanks so much, Camille. Glad it brought back good memories of this wonderful country. Such fun to photograph. 🙂 Reply ↓ Sadje November 4, 2018 • 3:46 pm Lovely images. Thanks for sharing Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 9:41 am Thanks very much, Sadje. Happy you enjoyed them. Reply ↓ Steve Schwartzman November 4, 2018 • 3:39 pm You must have taken a gazillion pictures, what with so many things being different from the way they are at home. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 9:39 am Hi Steve, I sure did! Have hundreds more to cull through. Haven’t even started on the amazing temples and shrines. The Japanese people, however, are the highlight of my experience. Glad you enjoyed- thanks so much. Reply ↓ John November 4, 2018 • 3:29 pm Wow I love these photos Jane, so much colour and smiling people. A very different culture. Must have been a fabulous trip! ❤️😄 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie November 6, 2018 • 9:33 am Thanks, John. Wonderful people and fascinating country. Loved every minute and I’m happy you enjoyed these portraits. 🙂 Reply ↓ conspicari November 4, 2018 • 3:28 pm Great set of images. love the bright colours and captions.
