Museum Side - I Spy With My With My Unusual Eye...Tokyo

Whenever we’re scrolling through our photos of Tokyo together, ITALIAN/Franca will stop on an image & half-mutter; “what the hell is that?”, hoping that I’ll approve a tap on the ‘Delete’ button.

N O … C H A N C E, says I

My eye for an unusual – or on occasion, unrecognisable – photo isn’t what most would describe as a talent, but it something I’ve been proud of since we left the the UK in June. The fact that you have to remember when looking at these pictures is that they’re not intended as postcards for family, or pictures for a glossy magazine, no; they’re intended to capture the moment, the angle & the unusual.

These ‘unusual’ angles (which we’ve christened as ‘ddangles’) aren’t intended to represent the usual angle of travel that people see when they flick through National Geographic, they’re intended to represent how Franca & myself look at travel:

‘Searching for Architecture, Art, Design & Music during their ongoing travels’

So that’s what we’re doing. Searching for Architecture & Art, taking a photo & in some way making art of our own whilst hoping someone in our new community of friends will enjoy just as much.

Please enjoy my angle & ’unusual eye’ of Tokyo

I’d like to point out I wasn’t in that Starbucks Tokyo above, not even for free Wireless Fidelity.

Perhaps I’m not alone. There may people others out there who share my ‘unusual eye’, but I’m only just starting to meet them. I’d love to socialize with more. Even if there aren’t, I’d love to hear what people think to the angles I’ve selected. Normally they are far more obscure than this but I didn’t want to make it too impossible to tell that these we’re all taken in Tokyo.

Honestly, some of them are just pictures of steps. See?
