Reds and yellows in Shinjuku’s red light district.

I particularly like the yellow.

Cheers. Quite taken with that one myself. Fortunately just about managed to get her in the right spot.

I particularly like the (sort of) matching blue trouser legs. A feat indeed!

Haha, indeed. But yeah, that was a nice little extra. As is the foot in the top right. Now if only the buckles on her coat had been round to match the bicycle wheel…

Yeah I totally agree with everyone as well. The colors are so vibrant that I feel as if I can almost touch them!
The man seems to be a little upset as perhaps he has been caught leaving an establishment:)

I know eh? They were lovely bright spots on an otherwise very dull and grey day.
Haha, that’d make a good story, but in his defence he was just stood there on the phone. No hint, as far as I good see, of any, erm, ‘meetings’!

The yellow is such a cool shot. Awesome timing! 🙂

Thanks. Happy with that one. Even had to do a fast walk to catch her, so especially pleased I got the shot.

Completely eye popping!

They really were. The reds really stood out, and the lady’s coat was visible from quite a distance!

Wow, what an arresting yellow coat.
I used to have a pair of jeans that colour – but that was a long time ago when both my waist size and fashion sense were much smaller.
I have to admit to being a bit of a vending machine geek – I have endless photos of them from my visits. But it’s nice to see them feature in a professional photograph. The balance you have got with the reds either side of the man in black is remarkable. And his expression is wonderfully direct.

Isn’t it? As interesting as it is unusual. She really did stand out.
Thanks. To be honest, I tend not to notice them that much. Just become so accustomed to them I suppose. But these ones, along with red cones and the freshly painted red post, really did stand out. Even more so with the man as a contrast. I took 2 shots. The first he was just looking at his phone, so it didn’t really work. Then he must have sensed me there, cos he looked up and then that’s when I got this. The eye-contact, and expression, made all the difference.
