We set off to see the Meiji Shrine in the rain. The day had started out wet, with the weather steadily growing more intense; luckily I had my umbrella, my Marmot Precip parka, and some Gore-tex hiking shoes, with the Olympus SLR coming in and out of the parka. The low light levels were particularly challenging since higher ISOs on the E-510 tended to become somewhat noisy. This shot is much better in black and white rather than color.
Afterwards there was lunch at an upscale ramen restaurant at the Omotesando Hills complex.
