It’s good to shoot and make a new image, but some time you can also learn something from the past. Retrospective? May be.
Anyway, from now on I’ll share some of my favorite image with some behind-scenes.
Now there are two towers in Tokyo: Tokyo-Tower and Tokyo-Sky-Tree.
Newer the Sky Tree is more popular, but still my favorite is the old icon.
The location is popular for seeing the unique combination of the old temple and the tower.
Due to the tall tower, all of the images I saw from here were appeared to be learning backwards.
I wanted to be correct them, so I tried myself with my new pc-e 24mm lens at that time.
With some rehearsal, I settled the direct front of the temple and the tower.
With full shift, I managed to capture the tower from the bottom to the top.
Even in a week day, there were so many tourist here
Without shift: to keep the image parallel, you can’t include the top of the tower.
The premium of using a shift lens, you can make a panorama shot easily without no distortion thanks to the large image circle of the lens. The only problem is that you can’t see the result of the panorama at the field. Maybe an iPhone is superior for making the panorama.

Merged image the two images. The original size is 7206ｘ7206. You can keep a high resolution square image without cropping.
These images were captured by the old type of Formatt-Hitech’s ND filters.
They made a strong blue cast to the image.However in the black and white conversion, it wouldn’t be the huge problem for me, but if you want to keep the image color the blue cast would be the problem
Do you remember the movie “the Philadelphia Experiment?”
It’s 80’s old SiFi and have remade several times on TV and DVD.
(they were not as good as the original, I bet. )
A military ship time warped to the several different era by the cause of unexpected result of a secret experiment conducted by the government. They were trying to return their age, brabrabra..
The combination of modern Tokyo tower and the old traditional Japanese temple “Zojoji(増上寺)” made me recall the time-travel movie. I enjoyed having an imagination if the Tokyo tower would time warp to old Edo-period in Japan.
