On the street near in Umeda, Osaka.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

@Ronnie 2¢: Yes Ronnie, in Japan all zebra crossings are traffic-light controlled.

Beautiful light and shadows. Very few people waiting at this time of day.
