@H.O: Thanks, Hiro! I'm really attracted to colours, but when they don't add value for me, when I prefer stressing light and form, B&W is it!
The triple whammy! sign, van and old guy. nicely done.

@Stu: Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, Stu!
Man, we both get a walk by up on the same day...must be fate trying to tell us something I reckon. Yours batters mine into submission though. The stride of the gent (man he's got some purpose!), the beat up yet really quite beautiful van (Im a sucker for anything old) and the sign, which seems to be saying what it sees. If it had eyes that is. Which I dont think it has.

@Duncan Galbraith: Thanks, Duncan! No battering, needed: I'm sure all our pedestrians can get along without resorting to violence. I was actually photographing the van. I circled it, tried it from many angles and so on, but yeah, this is the one were the magic happened.
A timeless shot. The b&w is very good and the blur of the man passing by excellent. That van looks antique itself. It all goes so well together. Great photo.

@Martin: Thanks, Martin! The van was antique in a way. Loved your thermometer today by the way.
Really a good street scene!

@objectif-plume: Merci, O.P. I'm trying to capture the wit of Cartier-Bresson.
That guy is on a mission! He makes a nice opposition with the antiques.
p.s Thanks for the cute video.

@Maoya: Thanks, Maoya! He's on a mission, I think, to get out of the way of my camera.
love all the elements here playing together, Damon. and it's fresh to see such a shot taken from this position - ie without the building facades behind, but rather from the buildings out across the sidewalk. i feel like the guy should have a for sale sign around his neck as well. great stuff!

@jc: Thanks a lot, John! I hadn't really thought of the perspective as unique. I suppose it might be different from usual. As I mentioned to Duncan, my intent was to photograph the van, and the antique shop was at my back. You're completely on a roll with your excellent Ginza night shots.
I like the humorous touch of this one! Really enjoying!

@Still: Thanks, Still! Sometimes random things can be so funny.
Despite my very little experience in photography, I think I can say that it is a Very nice composition.
Less seriously : this man looks like a robot!

@Sébastien: Thank you, Sébastien! He was doing the robot; looking like he wanted to get out of my way ;-)
Very nice capture od movement. Great shot for B&W...

@Mammoth in Chief: Thanks, Mammoth! Great to see you creating again.
Looks like you captured an antique theme. Movement in this is well created.

@William: Many thanks, William!
Love this. For sale, antiques, man walking... great elements and composition.

@Craig Persel: Many thanks, Craig! It's simple, but everything seemed to fit.
