TD: Couple

(04.08.2009)

This was taken near the Asakusa temple. I saw the old couple on sitting on a wall. I tried my best Japanese (after two days my Japanese was incredibly bad!)... But I saw a useful phrase in one book. "Shashi o totto moi deska?" (May I take a picture?). I tried it once "Shashima toto o moi deska?" They looked at me... I tried again. "Sushi o tot mo deskai?" Still they were wondering what I wanted. I just wanted to take a picture of them ("kuso, i thought, it's very difficult"), so I showed them my camera and said "picture??". They finally agreed and so this picture was "born".
