I like that 4th one where you can see all the spirits that show everyone's going to perish. Oh wait, I'm getting confused with various horror films again. Speaking of timelapse, have you tried any of the moonlight landscape photos yet? Granted, I don't know if your camera will do an 11 minute exposure.

t: because they NEVER stop cleaning. I remember in once city... Nagano?... we set our bags down in the hallway of the train station for about ten minutes while Peter ran one errand and Pamela ran another. I was in charge of the bagheap, and during that ten minutes I was in the way of no less than three different cleaning personnel performing three different cleaning tasks. they clean in real time, constantly.

anne: ty. I like the last one myself. Japan is not all dance dance revolution and delicious sake; sleep deprivation seems to be a major part of the culture.

gray: exactly. exactly. and no, haven't tried the moon photos yet; I've taken pictures at sunset, but not in the dark. I'll have to try it. the camera seems to be a pretty good sport about staying open as long as necessary.

if they ever make a murakami film you should direct the photography.

there's a depth to these...& a kind of desolation. stylized.

Jenn: that, I think, is the best compliment I've received in the entire lifespan of either blog.

have you read his book of interviews with survivors of the sarin gas attacks on the subways?
