Shark in Aquariums

In the tranquil waters of an aquarium (here near Skytree), sharks glide with a blend of power and grace that captivates onlookers. These magnificent creatures, with their streamlined bodies and piercing eyes, embody the mystery and allure of the ocean’s depths. Aquariums provide a unique opportunity to observe these fascinating animals up close, fostering a deeper understanding and respect for their existence.

Japanese Temple Roofs

Japanese temple roofs, with their gracefully curved lines and intricate tile patterns, epitomize the harmony and elegance of traditional Japanese architecture. Often adorned with detailed carvings and symbolic ornaments, these roofs not only shelter the sacred spaces below but also reflect a deep connection to nature and spirituality. The unique upturned eaves and the use of natural materials like wood and ceramic tiles contribute to the timeless beauty and cultural significance of these architectural marvels.

Coming of Age

Sunny day for the 2023 edition of the Coming of Age in Tokyo. This year I decided to make a short video in Meiji Jingu but wanted to travel light. So no tripod, no Ninja recorder, no gimbal and no bazooka. Just the Canon R6 set in HDR at 60fps, a VideoMic NTG and the very versatile RF 24-240mm lens. Quite happy with the results (video at the bottom).

New Year in Asakusa

Leisurly stroll around the Senso Ji temple for the new year. The difference from a few months back is striking: the foreign tourists are back !

PS: this video took more 3 days for youtube to fully process and provide the HDR version (200Gb of 4K 60fps footage is perhaps a bit much).
