Shooting Japan From Inside A Car

This trip to Japan has had me in the car a lot. Driving, driving, driving. Especially in Hokkaido when I had the flu. That was not fun. Two days with a fever with some bronchitis sprinkled on top. I’ve also learned a new meaning of pain. Descending down from 36,000 feet in an airplane with congested sinuses.

Anyway, something I saw Patrick La Roque do awhile ago was shoot the city from inside his car with the Fuji X30. The results were awesome and inspiring so I thought it could also work as an interesting perspective of Japan. It turned out to be a pretty fun way to shoot and a great way to pass time while stuck in a car. Thanks Patrick for always inspiring.

The cameras I used here are the Fuji X100T, the Fuji XT1 with the 56mm lens and the Sony A7r with the Zeiss Sonnar. I broke my Fuji X100T the other day so the Sony A7r will be my 35mm camera for the next few weeks. But that’s a different story.

If I had to pick one person to generalize the population of Fukuoka Japan, it would be this man here.
