By Ayelet_A
Good evening.

I'm back for a quick update and a little upload from Japan - and we've reached Osaka!
Osaka is a big modern city in western Honshu and was very different in comparison to the more rural areas we've visited in our first part of the trip. Very modern and has a busy nightlife Osaka has much to offer, including a fantastic panoramic view from it's famous Umeda sky building.

The image above was taken while I was on a Ferris wheel quite high up Smile
The Ferris wheel is part of Osaka's aquarium which is a huge seven stories structure filled with wonderful sea life creatures.
The view from the Ferris wheel was beautiful and the ride was an experience for itself. Looking down on the busy crossroad I thought how much Osaka reminded me of the big metropolis such NY.

It's busy week for me at work starting again tomorrow - really hate being away from you all, but I'll do my best to update.

Important future decisions to make - my head is running over times this moment. :\

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Human ants on that cold, alien grid. I love this one, it expresses what fascinates and repels me about city life. Really excellent, intelligent processing.
Wishing you strength for the next week - there are advantages to getting old and not having to face Monday morning work is one of them! (Though I am out photographing a community project early on Monday - but that's different.)

Thank you so much Moira for you kind comment, as always.
The processing was a spontaneous idea which came up because of the original angle of the image. Shooting from the Ferris wheel I couldn't get a straight image but when I wanted to straighten the image without cropping I was left with the corners... layers and a bit of PS magic and viola! Wink

Thanks for your wishes as well - I'll need that strength though I'm enjoying work, so It's nice getting up for that Smile
Photographing is always a good reason for waking up early Wink
I wish you loads of luck with the project - though I'm sure you'll do your usual best Smile

You captured the "graffiti lines" on the streets perfectly Buddie Smile

An almost 100% mono image. Really like this, quite graphic qualities.
Good observation.

Great stuff Ayelet - well worth taking from that precarious position Wink

Love the cross-processed look too.

Hope your decision making works out for you.

A great shot and well spotted Ayelet. The others have said it all, I love the almost abstract feel to it and the desaturation of the colours works wonderfully. As I have said before you have a great eye.

Good luck with your decision making, I am a great believer in fate and I hope it treats you well.

Great capture.
Like the angle this was taken.
Mono works very well.

Fascinating POV and love the treament too - lots of families coming and going to the ferris wheel I imagine. Just think, the world must be like this all the time if you were 6ft tall Wink
Do the pedestrians automatically have right of way as they would on a UK crossing; judging by the crowds and the fact that it crosses 5 lanes, I'm guessing not or the cars would be waiting there forever
