Green taxis after a green light.

Great timing for a great shot ! Shows the perseverance of a professional. I’m wondering where that is now

Thanks a lot! I’m slowly learning to have more patience, but thankfully this didn’t need much. Wish that was always the case…
A new spot for me. It’s in Ginza. Wasn’t aware of it before.

Wow! How long did you need to wait for this one lee? Or was it just perfectly timed?:)

Thanks! Happy to say not long at all. I was out with the missus, so it wouldn’t have been fair to stand there for ages. But only needed about 5 mins and half a dozen shots or so. Once I got this, I was happy to call it a day. Could have probably stayed there another hour and still not got anything better matched.

The emptiness combined with the two taxis of the same color so perfectly aligned gives the impression that this intersection is at a standstill. But I imagine that’s not the case at all.
I particularly like the reflected texture on the road surface, the touch of blossoms, and the fellows on the left hand corner looking up in what I can only assume is reproach for your taking their photos. 😉

Yeah, that sparseness is great, isn’t it? Definitely not at a standstill at all, but for the briefest of moments it did feel like that.
Thanks. Having initially just been happy with the taxis, those extra little details are a real, and admittedly unplanned bonus. The cherry blossom I was keen to include, but the rest not in the slightest. Oh, and I’d definitely like to imagine those people are looking back up!

This is really cool with perfect timing. Just awesome! 🙂

Thank you. Definitely along the lines of what I wanted, but really didn’t expect to get it.
