Mannequins of Ginza

This will be the last video I put together for 2012.

Of Mannequins in Ginza.

In truth, it's more like my impressions of Ginza.

Ginza might actually be one of the earlier Tokyo districts that I knew of, before Shinjuku or Shibuya, because I was stayed there during one of my first few trips in Japan when I was a child.

Since I moved to Tokyo, I haven't actually been to Ginza that much because I live closer to the Shinjuku area.

It was until a recent video shoot at Ginza on the day when the world was supposed to end that I found myself falling rather in love with the place again.

I even took some photos during the video shoot.

The photo of the mannequin prompted me to have a discussion with a lady friend, we both shared a childhood fascination for mannequins, they were either disturbing or intriguing to me.

"They are such melancholic creatures dessyo?" She said.

I agreed.

Especially when they are taken apart for cleaning or maintenance, and that lifeless smile remain upon their faces.

I returned to Ginza again two days ago, trying to check out the problems with my iPhone. My iPhone was incurable, I may have to get a new one.

On the other hand, I also couldn't stop myself from looking at the mannequins in Ginza.

Just a harmless mannequin.

This time, I also had my 7D with me.
