Fukuoka, la metropolitana.
forse mi converrebbe creare un tema chiamato "metro"... :)
da Tokyo a Fukuoka, percorso a ritroso nel mio viaggio giapponese. era la mia seconda sera a Fukuoka e ricordo che mi intrigavano le dimensioni dei cellulari 4G delle tre ragazze nonche' tutti i pupazzetti e i gingilli che penzolavano da questi telefonini...
(l'immagine non e' il top della definizione, ma ad 800 ISO e 1/25 la mia D80 non puo' fare meglio di cosi)
Fukuoka - the subway.
maybe I should create a theme just for these metro shots... :)
from Tokyo to Fukuoka, going backwards through my Japan trip - this was my second night in Fukuoka and I remember watching these big 4g phones with amazement, especially since Japanese girls like to accessorize them with every sort of gadgets and trinkets...
this time no one should object to the title - I guess these are really girls-girls :)
(the image is not really sharp but this is the best my D80 can do at 800 ISO and 1/25)

You should...(create a Metro theme) :-)
I loved their pose, preoccuped with their phones, having different facial expressions...
Re the sharpness, I had the impression that the automatic focus mechanism found an average which is behind the girls, that's why the f/4 gave details of the men (and the symbol in the upper left) in the background as well.

Another great metro shot from you - I do so much enjoy them. I find it interesting that there are three men in the bacground talking to each other but the 3 girls are occupied just with their phones and not each other. Congratulations and TFS.

Judging by the expressions the girls seem to be getting quite different messages. Sharpness a bit off, indeed, but you get away with it!
Reading Murakami again...

chissą perché questa immagine mi ricorda i racconti dal giappone di terzani...e la solitudine che questa gente soffre nonostante viva in una moltitudine!

Hi Cristina, This photo is so typical of modern day society, the three girls not talking just texting, I like the choice of B/W, nicely captured, kind regards Wilson.

Very nice presentation of a typical Japanese daily life on a weekday at Nakasu-Kawabata Station. Keitai addicts enjoying mobile phone, even more salarymen on the platform.
i like this warm tone with luminous whites and rich blacks.
Best wishes, Hisashi

who cares about sharpness? yeah, not me! i love the contrast between the three girls. the girls on the left are all made up, well fashioned, while the one on the right is comparably plain; with a sullen face and not so 'fashionable' clothes. great job

Per completare l'opera, avresti dovuto scattare la foto con il cellulare. Ahahahah! :-))
Mi piace il tuo modo ri ritrarre la gente.
Efficiente il bianco e nero!

How have we been able to live without a mobile phone? Each has a different posture, but they are all concerned by their dials.
A theme should be welcome to see all your pictures.

i have to agree with Hisashi, regarding the rich blacks and illuminating whites...its a beautiful combination, a photo well suited for black and white.
oh how cell phones have changed society! they have become almost an extension of our arms and hands, with the false belief that life cannot exist without them.
instead of these 3 talking to each other, they stare into a screen, as if they were sitting alone.
great photo, hope to see more such as this

my favorite way of seeing the world - the foreground being "supported" by the "action" in the background...
surely - the trio look as if each of the girls lived in different world...

well yeah you quickly clarified what Fukuoka means right at the head of the note, my mind is getting dirtier with age, thanks...
there is always that face that balances the mood, i think this was more of a reaction shot, i am fine with the quality, i would have just preferred more complexity in this..

This somewhat reminds of Seoul, and I just posted my own Seoul metro version fo this, I like that they are consumed by the world in the devices, and not the environment around them, they are disenaged.
What amazes me more is you used on of those big clumsy Nikon's to take this..surely they must have seen the beast? Or at least heard the loud clunking shutter? I was lucky to use a small, silent Lumix for these, I must admire you went for it with the Nikon and got this good result.
It seems starnge but their small devices, are now what is shrinking the dslr, as these little things contain not only their social worlds, but often a funky little camera too. Part of me though says that with quality images coming from smaller devices (iPhones even now), the days of the dslr and slr are fading.
