8 Days 7 Minutes 2014-09-1 A buddy's farewell, Shiga, filters and more

Working out the backlog that's built up over the last 2 weeks.Because I've been too busy to think, let alone edit.

 It's just another random mashup of Japan. And my life in it.

Hanx Writer - Get this App!

my thoughts are in the screenshot.

It's an app designed by Tom Hanx (you know, the dude who saved Private Ryan) because he loves typewriters. While they are before my time I sure as hell love mechanical keyboards and the clicketty clackkety sound they make.

No jokes. It's simple and it works really well if you need to pound keyboard on a screen. It gives you that rhythm you need to keep typing. It also showed my why my Cherry MX Red corsair board is not so brilliant for typing. Time to look into Browns or blues, since I don't game anymore and type like a mad man.

and why did I decide to start punting apps on my blog all of a sudden?
Because I can. I'm not getting any cash for it or anything. If I punt it, its cos I like it.

Random Japan Phone Snaps #3 ランダム携帯で撮った写真

Sometimes I snap things with my phone that I only ever use once or intend to use in the future but never do. They gradually build up till I drag them all off my phone into a dump folder, where would usually spend the rest of their digital eternities...

Until now.

Enjoy these random images of random times in random Japan.

I took quite a few street shots for the Tokyo Street Shots addendum to the a7S review. They also helped me get to terms with the camera for my review of it. Ive put all of them up on my flickr and dropped 5 here to entice you to go check the rest out.
