Goth Girl Rides the Metro

I hung out at Harajuku for most of the day and didn't manage to get a single decent shot (those goth kids are surprisingly camera-shy for people who dress up in crazy clothes then go hang out in the spot where tourists go to photograph kids dressed up in crazy clothes...). But then a photo idea formed in my mind, and I headed into the metro station to try and capture some of the lolitas against a motion-blurred train. Unfortunately the few lolitas that did show up managed to stand in places where I couldn't get a clear shot! But this one girl positioned herself well for me. I'm going back there next weekend to experiment more with this concept.

Sorry, I've been rubbish blogging! So here's a photo to entertain you until I get my notes in order.

Rowing on the moats of the imperial palace, Tokyo, shot through the backlit cherry blossom (what's left of it, anyway!)
