Exploring Dotonbori (Part Four)
The final part to a series of posts taken in the Dotonbori area of Osaka.
Often outside shops and restaurants there would be little statues or figures – this was actually a mascot for a place called the ‘Owl Cafe.
The camera (Canon 100D) coped really well with the low lighting situations. I think this was one of the first times I had been out with it at night. These images have had no editing other than a bit of cropping in places and you can see here it dealt pretty well with different colours and light sources.
Vending machines are everywhere in Japan, most sell drinks and occasionally cigarettes, but somehow they look a lot nicer lit up at night. Note that on the bottom shelf you can see a selection of cold coffee’s – the Japanese really seem to like their coffee cold and when in coffee shops you are always asked if you would like it hot or cold.
And that concludes this little series of photographs from Dotonbori. We took literally thousands of photographs while in Japan and it is going to take a long time to work through them and publish the one’s we think are best for the blog. It’s actually nice that it takes a while to go through the photographs as it brings back all the good memories of the trip.
