5795. PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS: TRAVELS JAPAN. Vagaries of Life. Homeless in Japan.

PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS: Vagaries of Life. Homeless in Japan.

On 30 May 2006, I visited Ikebukuro, Tokyo. It was bustling when I went out at 5.30am from my hotel. Seibu ikebukuro is a large department stall with links to a train station and a food court.

At 5.44am, I walked past two homeless persons sleeping outside the Seibu store. They slept on mats and left at around 6am.

Life is unpredictable. There are many reasons for being homeless and the State usually helps such people.

Every developed country including Singapore has homeless people.  This photo shows that Seibu Ikebukuro was kind to the two homeless people on 30 May 2006. 

Photography tips are:

Vagaries of Life - Homeless in Ikebukuro, Japan. 30 May 2006. 5.44am. Nikon E5000, 9.7mm, 

1/60 sec, f/3.1, ISO 200. I used camera flash. Probably 'P' Mode was set.

Today is 1 April 2024 (Easter Monday). I hope the two homeless persons have had bounced back and are living in a home. 




"vagaries of life" refers to the unpredictable and often capricious nature of life. For example, "We are all subject to the vagaries of life. Although we may do our best to prepare for whatever may come our way, we may still end up homeless.".
