Tokyo in Half-frame

I’ve just finished scanning all of my half-frame negatives from Japan. I hardly ever shoot vertically because I feel photos should be horizontal, like one’s eyes. But when I saw a little Japanese man at a flea market selling a half-frame camera that Daido Moriyama liked to use, I decided to buy it. Moriyama shot 100 rolls of film with the same half-frame camera on his first trip to New York. Since I would be going to Tokyo for a few weeks, I figured having 70 shots in each roll of film wouldn’t be a bad thing. More shots per roll equals less rolls to carry back home. If there’s one thing that Tokyo has taught me, it’s to be efficient.
