B&W Shots from Asakusa

After the latest Japan Drop, I thought that I would follow it up with some analog photography.  These scans of my black and white shots really make the surroundings feel ancient.  Asakusa is a beautiful place during the day and night; these photos of the lively market goers show just how packed the shopping street can get just after sundown.  I like shooting in this medium because you can get a sense of movement that is unparalleled.  In many of the photos, I myself was being knocked around by the crowd and the slightly unleveled framing gives that away.  The film also gives a nice quality to the movement of people, blurring just enough to hint at the gesture.  I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do and I hope they give you a greater sense of Senso-ji!
