  1. Nice shot! Im off to Ginza now and cant wait to see it once again

  2. I love this one in black and white. What time was it that you captured this moment?

  3. Beautiful work, Jane. This b&w looks like the perfect monochrome I’m hoping to capture one day, but I doubt I ever will.

    • Thank you, Hanne. That means a lot. This vibrant neighborhood is so bright and colorful but I think the lines and contrasts call out for B&W. Happy you like it and I know your images are excellent!

  4. Truly a “right time moment” you caught. Most would imagine the Ginza as a cacophony of hustle and bustle, which it can be. (Been waiting to use the word cacophony, lol.)


    • Hi David, Sorry for my late reply. I’m so glad you like this one– yes, I found this moment quite compelling given the cacophony (great word!) of the neighborhood. Thanks so much! 😃

  5. What a wonderful shot – so much to look at! Love the shapes and angles, the drama of a city at night, and the relative “solitude” of the person in front.

  6. I’ve never been to Ginza, but have this preconception it’s filled with colors and light. I would not have thought of black and white. Nice tone and contrast selection.

    • Thanks so much, Dave. Yes, Ginza is fantastic for its color and neon lights…I loved the color shots, I made. However, I realized that all the contrasts and lines worked really well in monochrome. I’m happy you agree.

  7. Terrific… looks like you staged the perfect shot!

  8. Congratulations on another Monochromia post!

  9. Excellent picture, Jane – and certainly added to by all those thick white lines on the two roads. Adrian 🙂

  10. Manmade kingdom! You’ve composed the shot well to emphasize the lines and building structures.

  11. An excellent night light capture, Jane.

  12. Looks like he is all alone. Nice rendering in B&W.

  13. I love your B&W night photos, Jane. They have such a wealth of light and volume to them. I can put myself into the image and feel at home.

  14. This is literally a picture of culture- Ginza, Salaryman, phone, drinking with colleagues (probably) after work- just fabulous!

    • HI Emily, Coming from your practiced eye while living in Japan, that means a lot. I saw many examples of what you describe during our trip. Very pleased you can relate to this image– thank you so much!

  15. A little counterbalance for the Carrizo superbloom?

  16. Great photo 👍🏻

  17. Beautiful image. Must’ve been very late at night.

Love to hear what you think...
