Gion Corner

Gion Night Kyoto Japan

This is one more shot from the same evening visit to Gion. Most of the buildings in that area are very dark in color so this red restaurant stood out. It is unfortunately on a very busy street, and on this Sunday evening, there were a lot of tourists and locals in the area. I set up the tripod and set the sensitivity to 100 ISO with an aperture of f11 to ensure a good depth of field, which meant a shutter speed of 20 seconds. I waited until there were fewer people and cars and then tried to get the shot. It took several attempts, but I finally got a reasonably clear shot and the few people who did walk past simply turned into ghosts and disappeared…
