I took this photo of some school boys in 1985 in Hiroshima at the Peace Park. I guess they are about 14-16 years old. You can see the one boy giving me a rather intense stare. He must be in his early 50s now. Jeez. The lady in blue is a tour guide for the students on their school trip. Minolta X-700 + Vivitar 35-105mm f3.2-4 on Kodachrome 64.

This is an intense guy in Ikebukuro, Tokyo in 2012. He looks like he could be early 40s in 2012 so maybe early 50s in 2021 (so about 14-16 in 1985). Is he the same guy!?!?! Did he remember me from 1985 in Hiroshima? Panasonic G3 + 14-42mm f3.5-5.6. Sorry, it is a digital photo.

I was going through some Japan photos in Lightroom recently and I was sort of struck by these 2 photos taken in 1985 and 2012 in different cities. Of course, I don't really think it is the same guy, but it could be. Maybe he recognized me, but I didn't recognize him until I found these photos in Lightroom. Maybe, unlike him, I haven't changed much?

Impressive facial expression! That Guy into another time, another place, he's like "Shinzaemon, i'll cut you in half!

I need to walk out my X-700, XD7 more...but these days, it's F55 time, and my IS-3000...Film (especially Development & scanning) doesn't come cheap, so i exchange Bodies, when the current Filmroll is being full...

That old, nice Kodachrome 64....

Good Light.
