“The Warm Neon Glow of Home” : Saijo, Japan, 12th December 2009
Imagine you’re coming home late at night on a December evening, perhaps after some enforced overtime at the office, and as you walk from the bus stop to your flat, this is the warm welcoming view that greets you as you gaze up at the apartment building where you live…
Well, it’s a romantic image, but in reality most Japanese apartments are cramped and the building they come in is ugly and utilitarian by day.
Furthermore, I should probably come clean and confess that I got these orange tones by playing with my camera’s white balance, so the glow is a little exaggerated.
