Shibuya Crossing - "The Scramble"

Long-exposure fun at the busy scramble crossing

The big scramble crossing in front of Tokyo's Shibuya Station is rumored to be one of the busiest in the world. When the pedestrian lights turn green, people start crossing from all directions at once, making for some exciting evasive maneuvers. The intersection is particularly impressive at night, with neon-lit advertisements illuminating the scene from above.

Immersing ourselves in the organized chaos running like clockwork, we spent a few cycles at "The Scramble" to snap some long-exposure photos.
