Day 7

By Jes • Uncategorized • 26 Aug 2009

There are many photos that I took during our trip to Japan that inspire what I am doing in this project. There are so many places there that fit what is in my mind.

I always knew I would feel this way, even before we decided to go to Japan.

One of the first things that started me on this process was an anime that a friend told me about called Serial Experiments Lain created by Yoshitoshi ABe. It is brilliant! I think about it sometimes when I am working.

On that note, today’s images that I have been thinking about are images from our trip to Japan. There is the theme of the old and new placed together in the first image. The second image reminds me of some of the scenes from Lain.

This is a temple in downtown Osaka. We found it on one of our last days there before heading back to Narita and Tokyo.  Taken with a Mamiya C330 using Fuji color slide film (most likely Provia 125)  April 2009.

There are many streets in Japan that look like this near where we were. Wires and signs cris crossed everywhere.  Taken with my Mamiya C330 using Ilford black and white film.  March 2009

Until tomorrow

~Peace~

    Wonderful! Oh… I love how the tones match the scenes so well – a little bit modern, a little bit from another time. So great. xo
