Or should that be the sounds of summers past?

Wow! I haven’t seen one of those in a while. Definitely rockin!

I know eh? It was a nice surprise to say the least. Would love to know what he was listening to.

I like his style! 🙂

Likewise. A man with his own look.

Awesome pic, dude ^^

Thank you! The old fella did it all for me. Just a case of standing in the right place and waiting for him to stroll past.

A walkman. Awesome! The cool hat and shades are a great match too. Perfect! 🙂
8/14/2018 at 5:45 pm
Yes. The Walkman was a lovely surprise, but it definitely wouldn’t have been the same without the trilby and sunglasses.

Looking good! There’s something to be said for an audio player with big buttons that move.

That’s very true. Just like putting the stylus down on a record, the process somehow makes the music more important, or at the very least something to appreciate more.

I always wonder if some of the people in your photos are making some kind of fashion statement or they just don’t give a damn. Godspeed walkman guy!

Haha, Godspeed indeed!
Very much the latter I think. For all its conservatism and conformity, Japan has lots of eccentrics, and people who very obviously do their own, unique thing.

It’s a long time since I saw something like that hanging off someone’s hip. The ear buds look quite new though. Definitely a dude that walks to the sound of his own beat.
A wonderfully framed photograph. Hints of Abbey Road too 🙂

He most certainly does!
Thanks. Happy to hear you picked up on that. When I first saw him my thought was getting his photo in front of an old building, but then I spotted the crossing…

Getting some Twisted Sister rock music and headbanging are now his next step.
But seriously, I am curious to know what kind of audio file he is listening to.

So am I. Often think that when I see someone who really seems to be enjoying the tunes they are listening too, but with this fella that sense of curiosity was much more intense.

Abbey Road redux?
8/17/2018 at 7:19 am
Sort of, although it would have been so much better if he’d been barefoot…

Velvet pants never go out of style. I bet he has a truly outta sight pad to mellow out in!

I do hope so!
