Hikari Shinkansen

The Hikari (ひかり) Shinkansen train to Okayama. Shinkansen is more commonly known as the “Bullet Train” in the west. Still on a minimal trip with this and the last one. Working on a new photo essay that should be up later this week. Have a great labor day everyone.

    Great contrast and simplicity. I like the difference in style between the two types of lettering. The reflection is also an interesting addition. Lots happing in such a simple photo!

    Interesting image. I like how you framed it. Reflections are subtle, but nice.

    Cool texture to this shot. I love the symbols. I do like Japanese writing, really cool. This looks a bit like the minimalism of a DJ Krush album (milight has a particularly cool album cover).

    Really nice photograph. I love the apparent simplicity, yet, this is expertly composed.

    I'm digging that subtle reflection, it adds a ton of depth and interest to the image.
