Shibuya: motion and stillness

I know you must have seen this crossing before in many movies and on countless photos. I know it has become cliché by now. But I still think this place is awesome. So energetic and so lively, it is the quintessential Tokyo. I spend a lot of time in this location, mostly waiting for something interesting to happen and I think it paid off. From all the frames I took there it came down to the choice between this couple standing still by the lamppost or a guy in a white coat in the same spot. I chose the couple -- call me a romantic. ;-)

Ok, ok, the white coat had too much contrast for my liking. (2014-11-11 Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan).
