Shimada Tadashi - Wild Moments

Sunday, I took the train to Tokyo to see an exhibit at the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum.




The exhibit is called Shimada Tadashi - Wild Moments, The World of Beautiful Birds. (Check out the link for information and some photographs.) Shimada Tadashi is a 70 year old photographer from  Hokkaido.  The exhibit consisted of five sections of fantastic photos, with information in both Japanese and English.  Of course, I couldn't take photographs in the exhibit, but this is one photo that was allowed in the lobby.



It's an amazing exhibit!  If you are in Tokyo before September 23rd, check it out. The museum is easy to get to from the Ebisu station.  


Nearby the museum is a Blue Seal Ice Cream Shop.  Blue Seal is from Okinawa and found in few other places. I couldn't resist a double scoop (pineapple sherbert and mint chocolate ice cream) cone.


I enjoyed my Sunday in the city.

Looking at the link to the exhibition, beautiful photography. It reminds me of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibitions we see each year. Yum ice cream, mint is a favourite.
