Commuting to School

Commuting to School

Every day, even Sat. and Sun. (because of club activities and sports), students diligently put on their uniforms in Japan and go to school.

I shot this candid shot on a local train in the countryside of Japan early on a Sunday morning. It is such a representative scene of daily Japanese life I couldn’t resist, even though I am generally apprehensive about doing candid shots of students.

The Japanese use mobile phones to an extraordinary degree, but unlike American’s they don’t chat on them non-stop, they use them for e-mail.

I don’t do candid shots too often. I really love the way this shot came out.
