ザ・デイリー・グラインド – Daily Grind

Daily GrindAs often as I’ve been lucky enough to visit Japan, I honestly feel right at home there. Especially Tokyo. When I’m there I move around without having to look at maps or a GPS. I know which trains I want to use and how to get to where I’m going. And it all just feels like an extremely comfortable pair of shoes. I love it. But even so, I still find myself enjoying the everyday grind of daily life over there. Well, minus the having to work in an office part. He he. But I very much enjoy picking a spot and just watching people go about their business. Walking to and from work, to meet friends, or just to go shopping, I enjoy the slice of life that I get to witness there. So when I was walking around the Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower over in the Shinjuku District, I decided to hang around this particular hallway. It’s heavy with foot traffic, especially during the morning and evening rush hours so it made people watching easy, but fast. In fact, I was sitting off to the side enjoying a tasty steam bun from the local combini and enjoying the rush as if it were a television show. I actually had intended to get a photo of this long hallway with a thicker crowd, but by the time I finished my bun I ended up catching a break in the rush. I would have stayed longer, but I realized that it was about time for me to get someplace myself. So funny enough I had to rush a little bit after grabbing this shot. ;-P
