More Bridge Pics...... I Love Fog......

I guess I should correct myself when I say 2nd Narrows Bridge pic (on previous post... and perhaps other bridge shots I've taken). These pictures are not of the 2nd Narrows Bridge ( aka "Ironworker's Memorial" ), but taken from the bridge, as I cross it every morning on the way into work...... the bridge you see here is a train bridge that crosses Burrard Inlet from N.Van and into a tunnel through Burnaby.

2nd Narrows Early Morning Fog

I was almost late for work, but I just had to stop and take a few pics. Again, I didn't have my good camera, so I didn't get the best of shots, but good enough...... I need to upgrade my work camera... my dream would be the Ricoh GR Digital III. I know, kinda overkill, but I just can't live with a bad sensored camera (1/2.5" size)..... maybe I'll pick it up in Tokyo in November.......

Buskers in Harajuku

In Japan, it is not uncommon for the next pop band to be discovered on the streets, and what better place to showcase your band than play in Harajuku on a Sunday. These guys were pretty good, and the lead singer was very charismatic, really playing and singing to the crowd. I love the quiet mystique of the bassist (as are most bassists.....). You can't see the girl drummer, because from my view, she was behind a tree, but it looked like she was playing a hacked Rockband drum kit........if I can find the name of the band (I picked up a flyer) I'll post it..... I took in 2 other street performances in Tokyo. I'll post those in the future, including one of them that I actually bought their CD.... they were really good..... I love Tokyo!!
