Sakuradori at Dusk

Sakuradori at dusk. Naha, Okinawa, Japan. November 2013.

Sakuradori is an old street in Naha known for its hostess bars. I was heading the other way, into an old theatre house, but turned back to capture this parting shot of faded charm and dusky warmth. For whatever reason the Tumblr hive mind has taken quite a shining to this particular image. I don’t even think it’s all that great a photograph but hey, there’s no accounting for taste.
