More Invaders in Shibuya!

I was walking around north of Shibuya Station on a beaituful Saturday morning waiting for my son to finish his Aikido lesson, and came across more work from the street artist known as the Invader. This wasn't the first time I had see this particular work, but it was the first time I had my Nikon with me.

Concert for three

In September, my family visited Inokashira Park (井の頭恩賜公園 Inokashira Onshi Kōen) located in western Tokyo, Japan. It's famous for it's cherry blossoms in the spring and a large pond with row boats and paddle boats. We were there in late September, so no cherry blossoms. The paddle boats, a small zoo and assorted musicians, artists and street performers were the primary attractions for us and our children.

We encountered this gentleman performer really working it even for such a small audience! He had great spirit and had great character. I should have taken more photographs, but had to move along.

The Great Eggfly (or Hypolimnas Bolina)

On a previous trip with the family to Saipan in 2011, I spotted the Great Eggfly (or hypolimnas bolina) and captured some images of several with my trusty but now retired D700.
