While I was in Japan, I made a stop at the Tokyo tower, the highest structure in the country. Not only is it the television broadcasting tower for assorted stations in the broad area around Japans capital city, it's also a major tourist stop for a grand view of the city. On the way up the escalators that gradually take you to the observation deck a man with a thick unidentifiable accent said something nasty about the President, and made a sound usually called, "the raspberries." I responded by telling him to be fruitful and multiply, but not in those words.

Once at the top, I started scanning the city with a zoom lens on my camera. A lot of the views were interesting, but deadly dull for a photojournalist. A picture that makes a statement, or shows reality as the photographer sees it are what the journalist with a camera goes after.. The stament can be funny, or sad, beautiful, or horrifying. The purpose of these pictures are to educate the viewer.

I was about to leave without taking a single picture when I looked down. There on the roof hundreds of feet below were a couple, the man taking a wide macho stance, the woman leaning against what might an air conditioner. I set my zoom lens at 300 millimeters and shot a few frames. I was just in time. They walked away. I often wonder what became of them. On the way down to street level, I saw the jerk who bad mouthed the president, and gave him the peace sign, well, half of it.

Lens:50 to300 millimeter zoom.
