Description In Japan, they often have two story parking areas. This particular one has metal flooring on the second level. This flooring has holes in it to allow water to pass through. On this day, it was cloudy, so no direct light was shining through the holes of the second level flooring; just the light from the soft overcast. I shot at a low angle to eliminate the distracting background. Behind and above the car, you can see the second level flooring itself.I recommend viewing its 'Companion Original Image' (http://timdressler.imagekind.com/ Password: theordinary) to see this unique object in its rather pedestrian surroundings.
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.
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 twenty-four years; and I look forward to many, many more happy, healthy years together with her in our cozy little apartment in Takasaki.
