Evening all. Back to Japan tonight. This is Shibuya intersection in Tokyo, the busiest intersection in the world. At peak times, hundreds of people cross this intersection at the same time. One thing that makes this intersection special is that the lights stop traffic from all directions - at the same time! This allows pedestrians to cross in any direction they like. Amazing to be in such large numbers of people crossing a road. The intersection is outside of Shibuya Station and consists of 4 major roads and 5 zebra crossings. Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload. Just managing to click most of the time just now.

An interesting story behind the images, Moira, and very fine crisp shots they are.

Well captured Moira - shouldn't imagine it was an easy feat!!! In answer to your earlier question NO - the hide stays in the garage (folded up) or the garden the kingy was taken at the nature reserve hide & then I spent some time in my garden getting perished!! It's enough that the neighbours think I'm doolally without venturing out further with it and meeting strangers!!!! Tongue Lou

Not a crossing for the hesitant walker, but an idea that has been copied in many places, the idea of crossing diagonally is catching on in Scotland. Nicely caught here Moira.
