Japan Trains and Station Clock in Sepia

Japanese trains usually run like clockwork, but are sometimes delayed because of weather such as strong wind or snowfall. The train station is busy throughout the day. During the day, it is filled with shoppers and travellers. By 10 p.m., the shops have closed and the homeless have come inside to claim their spot for sleeping in any corner they can find.

This photo is of the clock that hangs in the center, above the ticket gate. The lower deck is for the local trains. The second floor is where you can catch the Shinkansen-Bullet train.

Station Clock
I took this photo a couple of days ago. I didn't even notice the man on the second floor until I was editing the photo.

Juana, welcome to Sepia Scenes! Glad to have you join us! Love the sepia tone. Is that guy taking a picture of you??

Hi Mary, thanks for the welcome. That guy was talking on his cell phone, but I blurred out his face, so it looks like he's taking a photo of me. Accidental effect!

I have never seen such a lovely clock. Nice sepia shot.

Isn't that funny how that happens sometimes. It's like your camera sees more than you do.

I love seeing other shots from around the world. This is really nice in Sepia. Welcome to sepia by the way.

What a great sepia subject, well done!

Carletta said...

I like this in sepia - without all the different colors vying for attention the graphics seem to pop!
Well done.

My Sepia post is at Carletta’s Captures.

Welcome to Sepia Scenes, it's a meme you'll grow to love.
Wonderful first entry in sepia :)

Welcome to Sepia Scenes, Juana :)! I wouldn't notice the man either, because the other objects seem more fascinating. Great first entry. Best wishes.

Welcome to Sepia Scenes. Love the picture and immediately started imagining how colorful the scenes is in reality.

Deb said...

I agree with Carletta, and I enjoy all the aspects of your photo.

Robin said...

Very nice, the monochrome really allows the lines to pop. Love the way the man appears to be taken your picture as well, sort of a hall of mirrors effect.

I like the way the sepia brings out all the architectural aspects so clearly. I didn't notice the man right away because I was drawn to the clock face. He does appear to be taking your photo too!

Thanks for all your wonderful comments. I look forward to improving my sepia and photography skills:)

Oh how many times have I found things like that in photos that I didn't see when I shot them? Your "visitor" doesn't hurt this one at all though. In fact, he may even lend a little interest (because let's face, it, at first you have to wonder how he got up there -- and why!)

Nice job of multitasking here -- great for both themes!

Dianne said...

this shot is so crisp, I like that
and I think the guy taking a photo of you taking a photo is great ;)

PJ said...

I see you seeing me seeing you seeing me seeing you...the sepia is so soft and then the photographer is so intense. Cool!

Such great contrasts for sepia! Well done.
