In the neighbourhood.

I carry my camera with me almost all the time when I go out, even when I just go quickly run to the post office. These are what I always see, I enjoy seeing them at different times of the day, how they look different at different times. The house in the top photo is my favourite house in my neighbourhood. They have a cherry tree in their balcony up on the first floor, I should take a photo when the blossoms are out to show you. I hope the house owner will not be mad at me.

Happy weekend!

P.S. Check out olivelse new web shop! Also pieni. These are my favourite lovely shops from France. And these mittens from mieke willems are SO CUTE!

  6. alice, i think i know that feeling, after coming back from holidays... yes that little shop is cute, isn't it!

    Narumi, jiyugaoka isn't as exciting as other areas in tokyo, but it's nice to be living near it. olivelse shop is wonderful isn't it.

    marie, thank you! what i'd love to do today is to walk around melbourne streets with my camera under the nice hot sun. (if it's not too strong)

    lucie, thank you :) happy weekend to you too!

    Jeanne, yes it is kind of Kyoto-ish. much more modern i think though. just wonderful.

  7. that first house is so lovely. i like their use of textures. And I really like those shrubs they have. Japanese have the best gardens.

    I am in love with that store front.

  9. these kinds of photos make me feel lonely in a happy way. haha... i like doing this, too. walking in the neighboorhood. im still kind of shy pointing my camera especially when there are passersby.

    anyway, im planning to include you in the blogroll of my little blog. im asking your permission before doing it. i hope its ok with you! ^^ thanks!

  10. looks so quiet and peaceful (very typical of jyutakugai i guess).
    it's very hard to take a photo without people in it over here in hong kong...

  11. Celine, i love japanese gardens too, but it's not that common for people to have it at their home. well not many people have ANY gardens at all in tokyo anyway! space is so limited, unfortunately...

    Danya Ristić, thank you so much! i'm glad you like them :)

    mike, i know what you mean! i get a little shy pointing my camera sometimes too. but i guess you'll get used to it. and of course i'd be more than happy to be included in your blogroll!

    sekimachihato, do you mean even in the residential area it's hard to take a photo without people in it!? i normally get around on the weekdays, so i guess there's less people, but still i always try to avoid people gettin in my photos ;)

  15. Just love your photos. There's such a unusual light, almost a Lomo feel...

  16. your photos are all amazing! they give the perfect feeling of the residential areas in Tokyo. May I ask what kind of camera you are using? I love the style of the treatment and would like to experiment with that feel!
