    Destination Wedding Japan and Camera Porn

    I just finished up photographing a wedding in Japan and wanted to share a little. Incredibly classy wedding and wonderful clients. I didn't have much time to explore Japan, but did enjoy what time I did have to myself. Beautiful place and friendly people. I did have time to drop into the Yodobashi Camera Store----conjures up images of the ultimate in camera and electronic toy porn store. Very overwhelming place to visit.... I think it was about six stories of electronics...my eyes glazed over as I wandered the aisles....

    Just a few images:

    1. Camera section.
    2. Film! What's that?
    3. 103" flat panel TV
    4. One from the wedding outside the New Sanno Hotel after the reception

    I wanna go back again to visit!

    Ken,

    So when does that 103" flat screen get delivered to your studio?

    Ken called me while he was at the store - something about a loan?

    Actually he wanted me to check into checked baggage rates

    Is it possible that Ken tricked a client into paying for a trip to Yodobashi, and while he was in the area he shot their wedding to keep everyone happy?

    ...the only saving grace was that there was very very very little by way of medium format cameras/equipment.....

    They had a special section on Pioneer Plasma televisions---and now I know why everyone says Pioneer is the top-dog. I'd take one of those over the 103" panel.... Saw a super thin Sony OLED television---small and expensive.

    Glade you're back home safe.

    What little goodies did you bring back with you - or would you rather have the conversation over the phone?

    Hi Ken,

    I love big screens , always wanted something like that, but if I got that right, this translates into something like USD 58K. Gulp.

    All of the sudden I am very happy with our 42 inch now.
