Ready, Set, Go!

There are countless Shibuya crossing photos out there and here's my mediocre effort to capture it. I wish there were more people at the crossing, but hey!  I can't subject my two boys to endless waiting just so I can take nice photos.
 Ready...Set..
Go!
Now, I wonder why was that guy in black suit standing still right in the middle of the crossing?

  1. The guy in the black suit forgets where he is supposed to go and hesitated for a moment..to recall about it? hehe

  3. @Bananazஇ,
    LOL I guess that may be the case.

  8. Oh there's also one diagonal crossing in Oxford St, London.
    We copied Japanese. ;)

    By the way, I am moving this weekend. :)

    It's really, "go, go, go" for me lah!
    How come you know one?!
    Psychic! ;)

  10. @Alice,
    If the whole Tokyo decides to have a walkathon, it's going to be a sea of people and be totally packed! @.@

    XD

  11. @Toshogu,
    Yeah and pretty amazing that as many were disgorged from the nearby Shibuya Station too. :)

  12. @London Caller,

  13. @Clara,
    That or maybe he's trying to make me some down from where I was perched, trying to get a shot of the crossing. LOL

  14. Good pictures that capture how busy the crossing can be. I really like it at night time with all the neon lights but that has stopped recently due to the disaster and power-saving.

  15. @Japan Australia,
    I would love to capture to colours of the neon lights too, but then I odn't go exploring much after dark. ^^

  16. You think there are not enough people at the crossing? I thought that's a lot! : )

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't know about you but for my travels, one of the condition my travel partners have to agree upon is they need to put up with endless waiting for me to take photos!! Haha!! Luckily, my travel partners all like to take photos, so sometimes I end up being the one waiting : )

    ReplyDelete
  18. But during my recent trip to Hong Kong, my travel partner does not take photo so I have got a bit of a problem there. Haha!! So sometimes I prefer to travel alone for the freedom! : D

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ooh! That guy in black suit. Why he stopped there? Maybe he's a secret agent or something? LOL!

  20. I'm glad I lived in Tokyo when I was younger...not so sure I could deal with the constant crowds anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  21. @foong,
    I've seen bigger crowd there! @.@
    My angle wasn't that good, it'll be much more awesome if I managed to captured the whole crossing, meaning people coming from all sides to cross the road there.

    Generally, Zaini and Raimie are pretty patient but there are a lot of times I get left behind because I have this tendency to photograph something that aren't at all touristy or shall we say, interesting? XD

  22. @kirsten,
    Me neither!

    It's OK as a visitor but imagine having to deal with this many people daily. Ugh! o.O

  23. Do you like this multi intersection? When trffic light is red, it takes a long time to wait. So I do not like this intersection.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @minor,
    because I only used it once a year, I find it quite interesting. But it must be annoying for people in a rush and had to cross the streets a few times.;p

    ReplyDelete
  25. Man in black prolly was going to get ready and do a dance step in the midst of the crowd hehehehehe, if i was in this type of crowd id be lost ..wait i think i was stuck in this sort of sea of people but cant remember when :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Interesting shot! That was a lot of people already; I have very rarely seen so many people crossing the road. And the guy, most probably he was figuring which way to go. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. @cuteandcurls,
    Yeah, maybe he wants to do like Danny Choo in his storm trooper suit. XD

    When in a crowd like this, I think its best to just walk ahead and not hesitate. ;p

    ReplyDelete
  28. @BK,
    Bad choice of place to figure out where to go, that I can say! XD

    And thanks! I am glad you find it interesting. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I hate Shibuya. But that guy *is* interesting. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. @Anna,
    Leave me alone in Shibuya and I'll probably be lost for days! ^^!

    Me, I prefer Asakusa way more than Shibuya. :)

  31. I wonder what he is thinking about. It doesn't seem to be any happy thoughts. People watching is so fascinating.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I suppose he had some troubles...., or he was thinking about lunch.
    By the way, do you like statue of Hachi that stands by the crossing.

    ReplyDelete
  33. wow, the guy in the black suit looks like a ghost. the ghost of shibuya crossing.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @AVCR8teur,
    People watching is indeed fascinating. :)

    Yeah, the guy sure didnt look happy.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @nobu,
    Or maybe he had lunch and was thinking of finding a toilet nearby. XD

    There are too many people at the Hachi statue!

    ReplyDelete
  36. @reesan,
    The fact that no one even look at him, yeah - made him like a ghost there.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love that crossing!
    I bet suit guy realised he was going the wrong way. XD People do that a LOT!
    I took a video of that crossing some time ago... should... yanno...do something about that. :P

    ReplyDelete
  38. @Ri,
    Yeah yeah yeah. do something about that video. We wanna see it. ;p

    ReplyDelete
  39. wow such a massive crowd. the guy looks like he's lost in direction.

    ReplyDelete
  40. @LR,
    Maybe he was lost. But him standing still right in the middle of human traffic is rather peculiar, no?

    ReplyDelete
  41. That was interesting! Maybe next time I should pose like him in the middle of the crossing. XD

    ReplyDelete
  42. @ristinw,
    Hahaha... and maybe I'd be there to take a snap of you! XD
