    They seem a bit young to be smoking, but why should that be different in any other country. Were you shooting from the hip? Great shot.
  • Ruben - ReallyJapan // 2008-06-26 14:47:13

    @SEAN - yeah, I was.. I took other 3 shots, one through the viewfinder and 2 from the hip, but this shot was more interesting..
    I like shooting from the hip because usually people aren't aware of being photographed, and their expression is very natural..
    A SLR is so intimidating sometimes.. I'd prefer a Leica (I'm accepting donations) :D
  • Lunamania // 2008-06-26 15:32:08

    This is a nice street shot. I like the gritty black and white and the slight slant to the frame.

    I like the one girls reflection in the metal and the way her head is turned, makes it looks like she is using the mirror.
    Good shot

    Very natural candid shot, I can tell your post processing is different in this photo. Great work though!
  • Filip // 2008-06-26 21:23:13

    Nice shot! And cute girls too. If you took away the cigarettes... :)
  • yee // 2008-06-26 21:23:52

    Love this street shot and the tilted angle of the composition!
    One would need some luck with Leica to get a pin-point sharp image (at the desired focal point) when shooting from the hip (assuming f/1.4 as in this pic)...
  • Radel // 2008-06-26 21:45:32

    great candid shot. very cool!
  • Jonas // 2008-06-26 21:55:26

    For "some" reason, cigarettes make girls sexy! And I think you succeeded in transmitting this mood here.
  • jelb // 2008-06-26 22:08:51

  • Iuri // 2008-06-27 01:36:05

    It was the things I liked most when I was in japan: the japanese girls with their mini skirts.
    I love your Photos.
  • Jeff T // 2008-06-27 02:17:08

    I have to agree with FLIP ... Great shot, and nice job on the focus shooting from the hip.
  • Jim // 2008-06-27 02:31:29

    The tilt adds some interest to the shot. I love the way the young girls dress in Japan.

    Is there mold and mildew growing around the baseboards where the walls meet the floors or on your plastic vertical blinds. Thus for expanded living it is beneficial to get a mini storage or garage made of metal. You will then want to rest a bomb near the gate to blow it open, and a bomb on the silver container on the wall.
  • best review // 2015-11-11 00:43:08

    Growing marijuana indoors is fast becoming an American Pastime. The grounds are altered. With all the increased interest and experimentation in house-plant cultivation, it was inescapable that people would employ their knowledge of plant care to growing marijuana. A lot of these who occasionally like to light up a joint may find it almost impossible to identify a source or are hesitant to handle a perhaps unsavory element of society in procuring their grass. There is, of course, the legal facet of purchasing or selling grass; Growing marijuana is just as illegal as buying, selling, or smoking it, but growing is something that you can certainly do in the seclusion of your own house without having to cope with someone you do not understand or trust.
