April 19, 2006 - One of the main streets of the Shida night market. Interesting thing about the fisheye view is that normally, I don't notice anything above street level on the night market streets because there is so much going on and so much there and so many people at street level that it's probably hazardous to look up. So looking at this, I didn't recognize where it was until I just focused at the lower part of the shot.

The crunch of people at peak hours at some of the night markets is really insane, especially for people-avoidant people like me. I usually put on my "Hard Groove" playlist on my iPod and blast it. To get me through a crowd a people, nothing works like music that makes me want to plow right through them.

iTunes soundtrack:
1. Abacab (Genesis)
2. Mahakala (Monks of the Gyütö Monastery)
3. Furious (Throwing Muses)
4. Lustra (Echobelly)
5. The Word (The Beatles)
6. Mona Lisa (Nat King Cole)
7. Far East Medley (Bela Fleck & the Flecktones)
8. Last Dance (Sarah McLachlan)
9. Hinomoto no Uta (The Boom)
10. Hold On ("Secret Garden")

I would love to get a shot of the night market at night. I should try using the flash, but I wouldn't expect much. Maybe I'll try going for "artsy" and use the flash and trying to get streaks.
