In the end of January 2014, I went to the Umeda’s Hankyu Grand Building to take some shots of the Osaka skyline. Right after the sunset, a majestic sight appeared to my eyes: deep tones of red and yellow were filling up the sky and, below the silhouettes of the mountains, while the darkness was falling, the tiny lights of the city were starting to shine. Those colors and lights reflected on the calm water of the river Yodo, created an amazing atmosphere. Unfortunately, after a few minutes of shooting, a man of the Hankyu security kindly intimated me to leave the building because taking photos was not admitted… Luckily I’ve already managed to take the shots I wished. It seems that in Japan is prohibited to take photos with a tripod inside many public places, but until the security doesn’t come to stop you, it’s not a problem. The important thing is to be kind and respectful.
