Tue, 25 Apr 2017 23:30:54 +0000Abandoned buildings have the ability to conjure up a whole host of sensations. Some are terribly sad. Others can be genuinely nice places to spend some time in. But one thing they all have in common is their silence. A lack of sound that can actually be a little unsettling at times, especially so after […]
Sun, 23 Apr 2017 23:30:21 +0000Each day is clearly a struggle, but it’s also equally clear that the resultant challenges are very stoically taken on.
Thu, 20 Apr 2017 23:30:02 +0000A face that is arguably as full of questions as the bar is customers.

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 23:30:59 +0000Tokyo is almost constantly in flux. Buildings go up and down, businesses change and the gentrification of so much of the city is utterly relentless. Mercifully, however, the more Tokyo changes, the more little pockets of it somehow remain just the same. Like this traditional old bar not far from the capital’s more central hubs. […]
Thu, 13 Apr 2017 23:30:35 +0000Some scenes, sometimes, simply don’t make much sense.
Tue, 11 Apr 2017 23:30:12 +0000Simple food, prepared in a simple structure, at the side of an old shopping street.

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 23:30:06 +0000When one door closes, it’s sadly not a given that another one will suddenly open.
Tue, 04 Apr 2017 23:30:13 +0000Some haikyo (abandoned buildings) are without a doubt incredibly sad, preserving, as they often do, a very personal document of a total stranger’s life. At the same time, others can be genuinely disturbing, due to the mutilated and decaying recreations of life that have been left behind. But now and again it is possible to […]
Sun, 02 Apr 2017 23:30:29 +0000The image of Japanese salarymen generally isn’t a good one. A mere glance at the internet throws up countless stories of monstrous overtime, not to mention all the photos of them drunk and disheveled after similarly excessive over-drinking. But regardless of whether the fella below overindulges at the office, or indeed in the bar afterwards, […]
Thu, 30 Mar 2017 23:30:12 +0000This old fella is probably just as fond of drinking in this bar, as I am of photographing it. And as far as decisions go, I’d say we both made pretty decent ones.
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 23:30:43 +0000With the cherry blossom now visible, it would seem this year’s flower-based photo frenzy has well and truly begun.
Sun, 26 Mar 2017 23:30:06 +0000Seeing rice crackers made using time-honoured techniques, in suitably traditional settings, is nice to say the least. Better still, however, is the aroma, as despite their simplicity, the resultant snacks smell absolutely sensational.
Thu, 23 Mar 2017 23:30:03 +0000Now no longer the smokers’ paradise it once was, Japan’s cigarette lovers are slowly but surely being ushered into the shadows.
Tue, 21 Mar 2017 23:30:33 +0000Hemmed in by a new car park on one side, and a ditch on the other, this abandoned house is small and basic to say the least. There’s no bathroom. Not even a toilet. A shared, breeze-block outhouse is the only facility. And, as far as a kitchen goes, it was presumably a case of […]
Sun, 19 Mar 2017 23:30:31 +0000Many traditional shops in Tokyo open out onto the street — a lovely communal element that further cements their ties to the local neighbourhood. In older areas of the city, a surprising number of them still survive too, although there can’t be many that boast a working, and still in use water pump like the […]
Thu, 16 Mar 2017 23:30:42 +0000The train system in Tokyo is, without a doubt, truly incredible. Similarly undeniable, however, is how incredibly busy said system can be. So while it’s possible to travel pretty much anywhere, the journey might well be a little unpleasant to say the least. But head to the Japanese countryside, and it’s a completely different story. […]
