Southwest of Tokyo, in the suburb called Fuchinobe. On this particular afternoon, I spotted an elderly gentleman making the long walk up the hill to the train station. He likely has been walking up this hill since before the tracks were laid, and he'll still be walking after this train has passed. I liked the juxtaposition of his walking against the speed of the fast, modern train, and tried to capture the comparison.
Try it also in Lightbox, either like this, or like this.
