Fukuoka is famous for its ramen noodles, & there are dozens of stalls & restaurants across the city. I tried some near the Fukuoka Tower, & it was quite good. I was slightly amused though when asked if I was a Moslem, AFTER I had eaten it, as it contains a little pork, which is strictly taboo for Islamic people. Shot near Canal City by the bridge.

Excuse my ignorance but what is special with ramen noodles? I like the colours of your picture as well as the set up of the stall. In a country of technology the stall looks pretty basic. And that red lantern is magnificent. Well done.

tricky light conditions, how have you managed that deep impact of the flash? The small restaurant is pretty good visible and I got some appetite. Nice light scenery by the advertisement in the background. Good joke in the note.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Restaurant ambulant ! Pas facile de restituer cette ambiance si particulière, et pourtant, le succès est bien présent. J'aime le contraste entre ce petit commerce et son environnement.
Très bien fait.

Good night shot of this noodles store with nice vibrant colours. Always best to make the sale first and apologise later if necessary ;-)

A good comprehensive framing of this ramen stall with the ususal lighting all around, it does not look very busy altough the two persons animate ithe scene well. Your whites are overexposed as they appear on my screen.
Have a nice day,

As night picture very well, also the colours in the darkness night are very well, a specially way for restaurant, but this are the custom of the country. Nice composition too.

nicely captured night scene. the atmosphere is very good and exposure well managed despite several blown-out bits. also nice to see the face of the store keeper.

Je suis sûr qu'elles sont excellentes les nouilles commercialisées par cet artisan dans un cadre super rudimentaire.
La pub est reine de la nuit dans ces régons de l'Asie.

The whole scene is so well lit inside the inky blackness of the sky. It seems very quiet with just the one customer. Your note made me smile; what if you were Jewish?

yes, give me a call when you can. When are you leaving the ROK?
I like this shot a lot. Its unusual for you gallery as you arent giving us a wide open view but a more concentrated photo with a human interest. Good quality for a night exposure.

It's interesting to know about a Hakata ramen stall owner who asked if you were a muslim. I couldn't imagine it ten years ago. How globalised we are! (Though he should ask you about it before you eat it...)

good night shot with great color quality and nice amount of details. it is surprising they'd even ask about your religion.
