    Great capture. I love the lighting and composition. Rainy days always make me lazy and sleepy so I know what they are going through. I always fall asleep on the trains in Japan.
  • cas poldermans 10y

    hehe good shot! hope these persons themselves never find the shot here on your flickr page; they would be embarrased :)

  • farfalla tokyo 9y

    Great shot! Did't you feel a little awkward to take the picture in the train?

    Sometimes, I feel a sudden temptation to take pictures of people in a crowded train (it's very interesting), but I can't...I feel shy.
  • Gary Hymes PRO 9y

    Farfalla - I didn't need the flash so I didn't feel awkward. I don't think they would have minded much either. :)

    That was before Koizimi's "no neck tie" campaign (I think it was about saving energy). I sort of miss dressing up (here in Hawaii an Aloha shirt is formal), but the downside is being so exhausted.
  • Gary Hymes PRO 7y

    Yes, exactly! I remember the "Cool Biz" campaign in the news. I believe it started shortly after this. Since I was the "typical American" I was always dressed to be cool. :)
  • drdrewhonolulu 7y

    I must be exhausting to wear that everyday, especially in July or August in Japan when it is so humid. I have to confess that a recruit suit has to be one of the most attractive outfits to me. I must have strange taste, or just not have spent enough time in Japan :)

    you should see them in moscow, in the subway... :))
