Asleep in Yoro

I shot this on my iPhone en route to photograph an art walk event in Yoro, Gifu, Japan. The young man was nodding off for a while, and I remember composing the photo in my head a few times, but it wasn’t until we got to this clearing that I opened the camera app, and shot this.

In Tokyo, it is rare to see so much open space while riding a train, and I believe it is precisely this space that makes this photo that much more enjoyable to view.
