Hello Sandwiches.

I took off on my mamachari (again) and rode around Koenji, Nakano and Shimokitazawa to take these ten Tokyo photos as part of Victoria Hannan's exciting 1010 project.


Victoria explains the project:

10 photographers. 10 photos each. All taken on 10/10/10.
A single day represented in 100 photographs.
No special occasion, no big event, just the essence of daily life captured through ten lenses.
The 1010 project was devised as an antidote to everything in modern life always having to be bigger, better, louder and brighter than what’s been before.
It’s an opportunity to slow down and appreciate the simple, everyday things that make life beautiful.



Pop on over to the 1010 project site to explore these lovely photos. My dear blog pal Pia Jane Bijkerk also took part in this project and her photographs are, as always, absolutely stunning.

Thank you very much Victoria for including me in this project!

Love Love
Sandwich

  2. oh my gosh you're photos are stunning! i love this aesthetic of urban photography. these just show how much the adage is true that it's not about the camera but about the photographer & you've got it. although a nice knew camera for christmas would be soooo lovely! what would you get?

  13. Hi!
    I lived in Tokyo for about three years and I miss it so. Your images make me homesick for what really is my second home (my first being Dallas, Texas, USA. What a combo, right?!). Found your blog thru the 1010 Project & I'm in love. Keep the wonderful posts coming!
