The Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo – Stuck in Customs

The Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo

Tripods in Tokyo

I’ve never had a problem using a tripod anywhere in Tokyo (or Japan for that matter)! I think that the Japanese people are so polite that they would never even think about asking me to stop doing something that I was doing. Also, as a foreigner, maybe I have this sense about me of, “Oh he must know what he is doing. Surely he’s supposed to be doing that!” I’m reading a lot into their blank stares, mind you.

Daily Photo – The Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo

Thank you very much to Takahiro-san for taking us to this place!

He took Tom and I here one evening and helped us to find some really interesting angles of this awesome loopty-loop thing. The only way I was able to get the whole thing in was to use the fisheye — see my Nikon 16mm Fisheye review here.

One thing that surprised me about this shot was the pattern the lights made on the water very close to me. It was like laser-light painting!
