I tried the 2nd time by stopping the taste by walking underground from the front of Nijirihashi to Otemachi.
This time Tokyo underground city is “Shinjuku!”

Probably in the widest underground city in Japan.

Lens and manufacturer introduction

Last time Curtagon 28mm was also good, but because it is also a blog based on old lenses, we decided to try another lens and try different lenses this time.

What I studied was that I actually brought it,

As usual the fewer turns,

Various usability is taken well,

First taken with Flektogon,

I thought that this is good, but I noticed that I tried taking a picture with wide harrier.

People look small.
This is big.

It would be appreciated to be able to take the feeling that individuals can not identify.
You do not have to worry too much about it.

But occasionally it is good to see a person as small as I want to copy a figure as an element.
So I decided to go with Voigtlander WIDE – HELIAR 15mm this time.
Well for not being an old lens. I can not find an old lens that can take properly with this angle of view.

Today’s agenda

· Second underground city planning in Tokyo. As well as differences as a building, the differences in regionality and the feeling of air are reflected.
· Since I also wanted to emphasize expressions with only underground passages and light shadows this time as well, I challenge to shoot in black and white.

Was it a little time earlier?

the previous Otemachi was from o’clock Sunday 22, I walked even this time under the same conditions, but, indeed Shinjuku is a sleeping town.
There are lots of people at all.

Although it is above ground, I was doing a street performance
160717_DSC09076_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

The expectation, the feeling of ruins where people no longer is almost zero.

Nonetheless, as the subnade approached from the 3 – chome, my feelings came down and I felt like finally taking a picture.

Nearly anything near ISETAN does not change from daytime at all.

Good underground city feeling from per subnade

It has become a basement that is melancholy with a nice feeling.

Shinjuku has a parking lot further underground.

160717_DSC09088_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

Oh, a cold feeling of a sign with a place where this man does not exist and letters, ♪ like a ruin where people disappeared

160717_DSC09090_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

And, already a sub – nude full of shutters.

160717_DSC09092_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

Then this signboard is like this.

End of 22: 55.
It was dangerous.
I could not pass after 23 o’clock.


That’s right, there are not many pillars around here.

160717_DSC09098_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

I feel that it is too neatly neat.

160717_DSC09101_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

It is a slightly different feeling of patience that the pillars of Otemachi were something good with martial bones.

160717_DSC09103_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

And apparently the underground for the moment seems to be far from here and to the ground for the moment.

160717_DSC09108_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

It was just in front of Yamada Denki.

Walking to the west towards the ground and moving

Although there may be some people staying in bed, the west direction still moves under the west big guard as it seems there was a basement.

160717_DSC09117_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

While thinking that memories yokocho can also be taken with a good taste, if I go a little more that this taste is not the same, inviting me to the underground good feeling.

160717_DSC09119_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

Oh, the walls and indicators that feel the time, feeling like it.

160717_DSC09120_Voigtlander 15mm F4.5

I found it roughly, it seemed like the underground city I was looking for! !

Here, how bored, Continue to next time! (I’m sorry I got a lot of characters and broke it twice)

Near the next main promenade
