The night with the orange crescent

Random night shot

Just another random night shot with an orange crescent moon.

Another random night shot. It’s fun taking photos outside late at night. Cool breeze in your hair and everything feels so much slower. You can take your time playing around with the camera settings, no hustle and bustle associated with day time. Although it depends on where you are loitering around late at night, it’s generally pretty safe everywhere in Japan. ^^. Not so in many other countries that I’ve lived in. Especially if you’re going to be lugging around a big camera at night.

I’ve really come to appreciate how safe Japan is. It doesn’t mean you don’t have to be careful though. Always practice the usual precautions. ^^.
