“Looking Up in Shiodome” : Tokyo, 16th March 2012
My first full day in Tokyo started off with a visit to an old favourite, the futuristic Shiodome area which turned out to be very close to my hotel.
Formerly marshland, then an early railway station, this is now one of the most modern-looking parts of Tokyo, with a close cluster of thirteen enormous skyscrapers housing the headquarters of various big-name corporations.
The place is an architectural delight, and just the kind of subject I like – huge, shiny, impersonal, and impressive!
I don’t know the name of this particular mirror-glass encrusted marvel, but it’s contoured like a gentle wave in the sky, made more dreamy here by my processing choices (soft focus, low-key).
