Description This is a photo of the 'Walk' symbol used for crossing intersections. It was one exposure, shot in camera on location in Takasaki, Japan. This photo uses a special photographic technique for the effect you see. No photo-shopping, except for contrast and saturation, has been used to create this image.
Tim Dressler, Takasaki, Japan Member Since August 2012 Artist Statement I was born 5 July 1950 in San Antonio, Texas.
Before coming to Japan in 1990, I was a better than average photographer in Los Angeles; mostly actors' headshots.
Now, I'm a better than average English teacher in Takasaki, Gunma.
As an English teacher/photo-enthusiast, when I'm not correcting my students' syntax, I like to spend hours and hours every week riding my bike through the streets and sleepy neighborhoods of Takasaki looking for art in ordinary places. I hope you'll enjoy what I've found so far.
Besides the "art" photos I'm offering, you might be interested in seeing the "ordinary" locations where the art was found. Please email me and I'll send you the super secret password so that you can see that gallery too!
In addition to the joy I have found through photography here in Japan, I have also found and been married to the most wonderful Japanese woman for eighteen years; and I look forward to many, many more happy, healthy years together with her in our cozy little apartment in Takasaki.
