      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.

      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.

      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.

      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. :)

      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 :)
