Drunken man ejected from bar; Omoide-Yokocho, Shinjuku, Tokyo

Myself and some buddies were just finishing up filming some last shots for a music video down in Shinjuku's classic food and drink alley, Omoide-yokocho [Memory Lane], when it all kicked-off at the bar opposite where we had been eating. This customer was being summarily ejected from the place...kept coming back to try and appease the owner, then was getting ejected again. Quite a scene. Poor sod seemed genuinely to be upset at his own behaviour and wanted to apologise but the owner was extremely angry. I'm sure the people who run those places in Omoide-yokocho have a lot put up with. But quite a few of them are very obnoxious themselves, like the Chinese woman who was running the place we ate in: awful woman.


Bloody difficult to follow with an f/1.2 manual-focus lens but that's where a motor-driven camera comes in handy: just keep shooting, keep making fine adjustments to the focus whilst you are doing it.
