If you’ve visited my site before you’ll know I’m quite a fan of tilt-shift photography, however it’s been over a year since I last posted on the subject… so when one of my tilt-shift posts passed 3k pageviews recently, it inspired me to turn Osaka all toytown!
The photo above was taken in the Tamatsukuri area of Osaka, looking down onto the loop line(Osaka’s Yamanote equivalent).
Okawa river, during the Tenjin Matsuri river parade
Ebisunishi area, looking down from Tsutenkaku tower
Dotonbori River, the low-angle limits the effect on this shot, but I still love the colours.
Amerikamura area, taken from the Big Step building
The southward view from Umeda Sky Building, looking towards Fukushima
Another shot from the Sky Building, this time north towards Nakatsu
Osaka Castle moat, the detailing on the walls and the water reflections really make the shot for me.
Finally, a second shot from Tsutenkaku tower pointing southeast. All the greenery on the left is Tennoji Zoo, a bit too close to the highway if you ask me.
Hope you enjoyed seeing Osaka in minature!
