I arrived in Tokyo late summer 2016. I was sitting on the airport bus, taking me to meet a friend who was to join me for my travels across Japan.
As usual, I was eagerly looking out of the bus window through my camera lens, absorbing all the impressions: the different buildings, surrounding nature, colours, shapes; capturing the moment in time, how it was that day.
'Skytree High' is a fleeting glance through the window crossing a bridge in Koto Kiba. When I look at the image now, I love its lines, the motif of the buildings, and the colours. See also the tower at the end of the canal and realize it’s the 643m high Tokyo Skytree.
It's always thrilling as a traveller to discover something new, especially when it is out of the blue….
Whether you get to ride over the Koto Kiba bridge or not, try to find the 'at first not seen' in life. Life is so much more than you see at first. And trust yourself to glimpse at least a few of its greatest treasures!
