Chiba, Japan

Photograph by Jonny Taise, My Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel

Traditional lanterns illuminate a walk home in Chiba, one of the five main cities that surround Tokyo Bay. Tokyo and its satellite cities are at the center of Japan’s politics, arts, commerce, and communications, the bay area having attracted millions with new jobs and lifestyles following the devastation of World War II.

Photo Tip: The rules of composition for normal daytime photography apply equally to a night picture, but more attention needs to be paid to what is actually in the frame.
