YOKOHAMA BY NIGHT


I planned this for a long time and finally did it. A photo-bike-walk in the night of Yokohama. It turns out I took a lot of photos.

Yokohama by Night


The goal was to go from Minato-mirai to Chinatown. These pics were all taken in full manual mode without any tripod.

When I found something I can put the camera on I use it, else this is just the "take-a-big-breath-and-try-to-not-move" technique, which is difficult when the exposition time is close to 2 seconds...

Anyway I did my best :) [Above : Even a parking can look good at night!]

This is Akalenga (or maybe Akarenga ...) one of the main attraction here, I already introduced it in an older article.

This place was still in construction early in the year, once again they did a great job.

The weather was really cloudy, so optimum for the photos... But the temperature is really cool now, autumn is coming, it's my favorite season in Japan (once the typhoon are away).

Below, the same place taken an other day, slightly earlier, some buildings were still enlighten.

As I was alone, I did not have any cute model to photograph, so... here is my bicycle ^_^

I recently bought the same brake lever (but a black one) for a Frenchy, I have to send it to him now...

(I hope you are patient man!;)

Ok I can see you are doing an over-dose of bicycle photos (but for me it was fun to try different settings on the camera), so let's go back to our main subject.

Minato mirai over and over again :)

By the way, if you did not notice it, all these photos are click-able! (it's not the case in my previous articles but it will be from now).

So if you do so, you can see them in a bigger size.

I am almost considering to change my articles template to display directly the big ones, but I am not sure ... It might take time to load, especially in such an article with more than 50 photos...

Now we are on the ÅŒsanbashi pier.

Which offers an other great view on Minato Mirai.

This cloudy sky turned to be incredible with the moonlight.

Looking at this photo, I can hear some Black Sabbath music!

That's it! A sea-side walk/ride between Minato-Mirai and Yamashita Koen which is is probably the most popular walk in Yokohama. I hope you enjoyed.

The world is your tripod.

Awesome pics.

I want brakes like yours.

BTW you're using a Nikon D5000 right?

Thanks !

Billy ; you can find the lever at Sexon Pista (they have chrome ones in stock, I went last week) or at Blue Lug (they had some colored ones about 3 weeks ago). It's the perfect lever if you use only one brake (front one is better on fixie) : can be used by both hands.

Protocol Snow : yes it is. Nikon D5000. I am happy with it. (But video mode is difficult to use if you don't have very good lenses [like me] and the sound is crap) . But for photo it's really great. Now I want a new lens though ^_^

Nice :)
I wish I was less lazy and going more often shoot my neighborhood... MM is 5 minutes from my place.
Maybe a tripod would be a good investment for you :).

Hello Alban,

Indeed you should go! Move your a$$ lazy Frenchy and go out and take us some good shots! :) Besides, I am sure you know interesting places.

As for the tripod, yeah, it is certainly a useful tool to shoot but to carry and set-up each time :/ ... Do you use one? or tried some? Anyway, I still have a lot to learn before I 'd need it I think...For now I am just scratching the surface of what we can do with a DSLR.

Love the photos, they're absolutely wicked. What camera are you using?

Great pictures. I especially like the blues that you captured. My camera wouldn't even come close to capturing night shots like that. Beautiful!
