This is the fourth in a series where I share older images that I’m quite proud of but which are unlikely to otherwise appear here.

Torii Stickers

Torii Stickers

Nikon D90, 50mm, ƒ/4.5, 1/200s, ISO 200

This is a detail of a torii gate at a shrine in Ueno park, Tokyo. I took this on my first trip to Japan in 2009, which feels like a very long time ago now! I’m not sure why it’s adorned with stickers, perhaps from local sponsors or businesses wishing for good luck? At any rate I liked the textures and colours.
