Day Two: Street & Establishing shots

This is my assignment for day two of the “Photo101” workshop.

The assignment is to establish a wide-angle shot-a photo that sets up a scene.

Despite being one of my busiest days and a gloomy grey day to boot-I was motivated to get out and see if I could complete the assignment. I couldn’t go very far to look for the “perfect shot” because of time constraints but, I think I may have at least accomplished what I set out to do.

I quickly ran down our little lane to capture this photo: no cropping, no editing of any kind-just a rural Japan “street” scene on an overcast day. The “star” being the green-onion field…I suppose.

      1. I smiled at your reference to the 93 year old on the bike. I live by the Tama River just over the river from Tokyo in Kanagawa. There is a cycle way across the road and every now and then I see a delightful old couple riding along on a tandem bike. They always whiz past before I can get a shot!!!!


        1. Really-you are in Kanagawa Ken? My daughter and her family are up there-Zamashi

          And yes…the jitensha is the preferred mode of travel here in our little town-every elderly person in town has one!


    1. 🙂 it was a quick shot- I was SUPER busy but really wanted to make an effort and there aren’t many places around my house to get an exciting shot. I didn’t have time to walk into town. This is about as exciting as it gets near my home!


I really enjoy reading your comments or just seeing that you "liked" the post. It encourages me to write more.
