hmm, how many people?
I was messing about with the phone (which I've had since February) today and found a shit load of new options for the camera such as special effects like kaleidoscope, mutation, rendering (can render your picture on to a aluminum can for example) and many other crazy shit. But one thing that stood out was the night vision mode. Surely it can't take decent pictures in the dark I thought. So I went down to the pier to test it out. The below picture was taken at 10:45pm so as you can guess it was dark and since I was standing on a fishing platform there were no lights around me. This is what the image turned out like. (Reduced size)
not bad at all really :) Now top test it on a person up close.
I just bought one of the new 7.1 Megapixel Ixy's. The pics are silly big. I'll post some later.
I was visiting one of my mates today who lives on the 5th floor of an aging apartment block near a park. When I looked out of the window I never realized just how crowded Kokura (where I work and he lives) really is. Nothing like Shimonoseki. You'll also notice from these pictures that the area is surrounded by mountains just like Shimonoseki and most other places in this part of Japan. the pictures that have no mountains are where the sea is.
Look carefully in the background and you can see a ferries wheel (Big Wheel). My friend said that this is NEVER working even though it was only built two years ago.
It's the first time i have seen this thread, amazing! thanks for taking the time to put these pictures up. I've never really thought of going to Japan but i'm really thinking about a trip now.
I'm moving from the UK to Canada in december for about 8 months, maybe a trip after that is in order!.
The ferris wheel works daily, it's just that no one rides on it. At least it as working last Saturday when I was there... :)
You watermarked pics of your town? Hardcore ;-)
From my experience being over there, they sometimes get it the wrong way round too, i have a few photos from my time in Nagoya with my ex's friends and they kept doing it back to front, effectively swearing at me or the picture taker, but they had NO idea, made me laugh all the time and they just thought I was mental, asking my why i was laughing all the time.Originally Posted by Yakumo
Revolution - I said "wow" :D
I don't live in Kokura but I work there. I live in Shimonoseki, yeah the other part of Japan. I'm free all weekend I think. Let's meet up or come on over for some gaming ;) I'll send you a mail.Originally Posted by Japan-Games.com
This station looks EXACTLY the same as the train station in Peterborough, in the UK. It totally freaked me out :SOriginally Posted by Yakumo
