Originally I had a moment of photographic inspiration this evening whilst taking a break from fighting my computer (Adobe InDesign to be specific) in an attempt to make a few hundred name tags for a seminar I have to organize for work. Normally this is a straightforward data merge operation, but due to a comedic series of mishaps, this task has ended up taking me the better part of two days (at one memorable juncture I created a 400 MB, 563 page document which contained the same personnel information 10 times on each page) including the 5 hours I spent today cutting out name tags and stuffing them into lanyard holders. I never want to see another damn name tag so long as I live.
Anyway, so my idea was to make some HDR shots from my balcony at night and do a post on those, but in the end I wasn’t happy with the results and gave up. So then I needed something to put up for this post, and here you have it. A bunch of throw away shots from a recent trip into Tokyo.
I call them “throw away shots” not because there’s anything particularly wrong with them, but just because there’s nothing particularly interesting about them either – no fantastic architecture, no stunning scenery, not even an interesting story or narrative to go with them. They’re just sort of … meh. Sorry about that. Oh well. I guess not everything can be a National Geographic covers. *laughs*
A few more pictures after the jump. Gentle readers, please entertain me with some amusing anecdote or questions or something to distract me from the pain of my mundane, overworked existence. I’m counting on you to save my soul
Okay, that’s it for now. Thanks for reading. I’ll leave you with some R. Kelly. I have been rocking this song hardcore on my iPod during my morning commute. The only problem is this song makes me want to try and seduce every woman I see on the train (relax people, I don’t actually try), only I forget that a) I’m not R. Kelly and b) I’m on a train headed to my depressing workplace, not in a club getting my mack on. So instead I just groove silently in my head and awkwardly shuffle my feet in time with the melody. Sigh. But anyway, yeah. It’s a good song.
Now listening to: “R. Kelly – Skin”
