Shibuya: A frequent migration

The orderly chaos of Tokyo can be witnessed here at the famous Shibuya crossing. Intermittently this huge intersection – empty of people – filled with only passing traffic is transformed into a sea of orderly, fast-paced pedestrians.

It really is amazing to witness, something that just works against all odds. The movement of the people highlights the transient nature of such a place, nobody is here to stay – only here to wait until the next light sequence permits an escape.

Too many focal points can lead to confusion

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve taken part in the WordPress photo challenge, I’ve been both busy and travelling.

This week I return with a renewed focus, but with a picture from my home in Florence. Our grand door in all of its glory – both in and out of focus. A perfect representation of my time in Florence. The door always open.

Security set in iron

You can rest assured behind these iron gates, not only aesthetic but also safe and secure. Security done well in Florence.

Green spaces amongst the Tuscan colours

After months in a city like Florence a person can start to miss the colour green. Until you realise that she has her own green spaces, this one is park cascine only a stone’s throw from the city centre.
