When I went to Odaiba, a district of Tokyo that was built on reclaimed land, I planned on photographing the panorama of Tokyo from the Rainbow Bridge, which is a bridge that connects Odaiba with mainland Tokyo. You can see it on the below picture on the right hand side. By chance, while trying to find my spot on the bridge, I met another photographer and we started to chat. He told me that there will be a short display of fireworks over the Odaiba beach. When I checked on the internet I found out that it was the last day of fireworks display. It was a really cold and windy night, and I was frozen stiff after spending about two hours or so on the windy bridge, but I decided to wait up till 7pm and see the show, and perhaps take a few pictures. Fireworks are not that hard to photograph, but it gets trickier when you want to inlclude the scenery, while capturing an interesting explosions of fireworks in one frame. I was lucky to capture a few good shots, or so I believe, and here is one of them. I might be adding some Japanese calligraphy to it, not sure. What do you guys think?
