Tokyo Metro by Shteuf Tokyo Metro by Shteuf
So japanese ! People with their phones all the time, workers, metro coming, no time to chat, sleeping in the train, missing the station !

The "suit guy" accepts the journey, while all the others are stuck to their screens. Chin up, he tries to go forward and believes he has the choice. But all the doors eventually lead to the same destination… routine !

Photo taken in Roppongi Station (Tokyo) on August 26th, 2010 with my Canon EOS 500D + Tamron 18-200 mm, unedited.


Thanks a lot to `Topicality for suggested it as a Daily Deviation, and to ^ScENeYmE for featuring it !

Merci :) C'est sur que quand on vit dans le Sud et qu'on est torse nu sur son avatar, la vue du métro de Tokyo doit être angoissante !!
Plus sérieusement, c'est vrai qu'elle est angoissante, on s'est pris à analyser un peu dans les commentaires, c'est comme si l'homme en costard, le seul qui n'est pas (dé)connecté avec son téléphone portable allait de l'avant pour tenter l'expérience de la vie actuelle (professionnelle ?), avec son bagage (son expérience). Il se trouve confronté à une multitude de choix (les portes du métro), une belle illusion puisqu'il se retrouvera dans la même situation une fois qu'il aura franchi la porte (wagons semblables, même destination). C'est un peu comme une allégorie de la vie en métropole, l'illusion de pouvoir tout accomplir à un seul endroit sans finalement avoir vraiment beaucoup d'options, dans une foule de gens endormis.

Love the repetition of the train and the movement it creates, just think the depth of field should have been focusing on the man in the black suit instead for a better balance but still a great image :)

Yaaayy it's asian XDD

though, have to ask; why is it not blurred?It's usually pretty blurry when I try shooting a pic of the train

Maybe you should try working the exposure time, the less time there is, the less blurry the object gets. Plus, the train was moving slow arriving at the station.

Ropongi station. Been there. Nice pic. And you're right, that is so Japanese. Deliberately oblivious to one another.
