The End of an Era, Part 1

From September 30th, visitors will not be able to view the fish market. October 6th, 2018 marks the last business day for the Tokyo Central Wholesale Market in Tsukiji: the market will move a few kilometers away to Toyosu. I was fortunate to be able to visit the market at its peak in the early 1990s. I produced a small book on this amazing place: Tsukiji: Tokyo Fish Market Suite. While the market is clearly in many people’s hearts, the aging 1935 structure was in need of updating. I am grateful to have experienced this place. Still, access to the fish market and its famous tuna auctions will not be the same. Click on the image for a larger view.

Desert Stereo 2

This photograph is a stereo pair that allows a viewer to see the desert landscape in 3-D. To do that, look at the black line separating the images and cross your eyes to overlap the left and right images—you should see three images, the stereo image is in the center with the left and right images on each side. Seeing a stereo image may take a bit of practice and you may need to rotate your head to fuse the two panels. You can enlarge the image by clicking on it. The larger image may be easier to view. Another stereo pair can be seen here.
