Zase, Dekor and Elijah

A stunning new piece of work from Zase and Dekor at the junction of Ashley road, Sussex pl and Lower Ashley Road. Has had the scaffolding taken down this week revealing what the two guys have been painting for the last week or so.

It’s one busy junction so lots of people will get to see it and I think they will enjoy this new lovely piece that hopefully will be around for some time to come .

Mobile Suit Gundam

The mobile suit Gundam was on my list of things I wanted to see while in Tokyo since seeing Gundam’s way back in the mid 80’s and becoming a bit of a fan. 

So heading over to Odaiba and going to the main entrance of Diver City and walking around the corner and spotting it I was well impressed and glad I made the journey and I then spent a while just looking and watching it come to life so to speak  as they put a little show on with lights and I think steam coming out of it’s chest and a video showing on the main building behind.

I know the next time I’m in Tokyo i would go and see it again maybe picking a different time maybe in the winter and in the dark I think would look really good.

Godzilla and Tokyo

I got really lucky this time when exploring Tokyo, in the past there has only been one permeant Godzilla display over in the middle of the Hibiya Chante square near Ginza which is a beautiful but small statue.

Now there’s another over at the Hotel Gracery in Tokyo’s Shinjuku ward  built into the hotel and has rooms themed around Godzilla as well.

Then there was a Godzilla statue built to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Godzilla over in the Garden in Tokyo Midtown but when I arrived it had been moved to the main road but it still looked very good and well worth seeing as it was still attracting a lot of people which made taking my own photos difficult especially as I was short of time …

The Ken Fox Troupe and The Wall Of Death

I was fortunate  enough to come across the Ken Fox troupes Wall of Death at the 2015’s Bristol Volksfest and seeing as I have never seen a wall of death performance before I thought it would be interesting to see. 

There was some great riding skills on show and it was all very entertaining and it looked like they were all enjoying what they were doing and the crowd were all appreciative of their efforts on putting on such a good show and to be honest I thought it was really great and it completed an already great weekend.

Touch Of Red

I’m just trying out a bit of a photoessay on a building  that I had noticed for a while now  that had a red spotlight on the side of it and made the effort to go and take a few photos of it, using the red as a focal point.

Unfortunately or as it turned out fortunately  it was raining when I took the shots, so I popped down after work and grabbed my shots trying to keep the camera dry and  work a couple of angles trying to keep the  rain of the lens.

it was a interesting and fun exercise which I will repeat again I’m sure ….
