Asakusa – Tsukiji – Asakusa

When you are too busy coding and your mind doesn’t work anymore, instead of keep pushing, take a break and do something completely different. That’s what I did on Saturday. I left home in the afternoon and walked down the Sumida River until it ends.

These are representations of famous art works that follows the walls on the river side. Nobody do any graffiti, damage or vandalize them. In almost any other country things wound’t work that way…

Maybe he was going to do something important, a travel seems to be in his plans. Before doing whatever that guy was going to do, he stopped for 2 seconds to do a little pray. I was lucky he popped up in my viewfinder :)
