Photographer's Note

Can you see the large crowd in the streets? Is it a festival or big event? No, it is just a normal view of this famous "scramble" pedestrian crossing in front of Shibuya station where this scene is repeated every few minutes. Of course some times of the day are busier than others.

It would be interesting to get a count of how many people cross the street at this intersection during the 60 second or so pedestrian crossing interval. It is kind of mesmerizing to watch.

Considering that this was a handheld shot taken through a window, it came out about as well as I could have hoped. Tech: scanned negative at 1800dpi, in PS adjusted Brightness/Contrast, Cropped, Blurred to reduce grain, resized then Sharpened.
