Street Scenes: Shinjuku Tokyo

When photographing cities the day doesn’t end when the sun goes down. In fact a whole new world of opportunities opens up.

The neon forests of Shinjuku in Tokyo offer the perfect setting for capturing an urban landscape at night. Tripod required.

Those colors really pop! I just recently discovered the asthethic difference photos at night make. I was at The Christ statue in Rio and it really glows at night!

Hi Wendy!
This is a gorgeous photograph. I feel like I've just had a mini-vacation to Japan!

Hi Wendy! Glad to get here, this time to be rewarded with the amazing Shinjuku lights!! Wonderful the way you catch the night pics without blurring them... ;))
Tripoli, Lebanon is also an amazing post!
Now, do you want to have a look at a magic place: Delos, Apollo’s birthplace and home to Dionysus sanctuary? Blogtrotter has it! ;))
Hope you enjoy! Have a great weekend!

Fly Girl, Rio is on my radar as one of the top cities I would like to see.

Monna, Thank you so much.
