First snow in Tokyo, Year of the Snake


very heavy snowfall in Tokyo, January 14th. the heaviest for 10 years they say. laugh. embrace the chaos.

I don’t worry too much about the D300 in snow. rain however, is different. it seeps into the gap between the grip and the body, and shorts out the contacts. lens-wise, I just use a very deep lens hood – the Tokina 300mm that I shot this with has a nice integral shade that pulls out and stays in place. AF is sometimes a little sketchy when the snow is swirling around, but we get by.
