Street Portrait: Taiyaki Couple By Earl GoodsonSeptember 25, 2019 ( 7 ) I wish I’d gotten their names. The wife spoke up first as I was waiting to cross. She’d lived 3 years in New York City prior and picked up some English but it’s been so long, she wasn’t very good anymore, she said! But…Pointing to her husband…”He has no English at all. Just a little.” Then they both laughed, confessed they were quite drunk, and the husband gave me his taiyaki because he could. Then went to buy himself another. Mine was custard filled; not my favorite but certainly not going to turn it down. I asked if I could take their picture and they gave me this lovely keepsake! I really need to get a portable photo printer so I can instantly share street portraits with lovely strangers in the future.

You meet people who don’t instantly strip when you offer to take photos but who give you free food on top of that. Red bean taiyaki would have been better, but hey, you didn’t even get yelled at! There’s something I must be doing wrong 😀 Reply ↓ Earl Goodson September 26, 2019 • 12:46 AM I’m betting the difference is that you were in SF; Tokyo folk are too polite for that level of weird 😉 Though it’s only Day 5; might still meet a yelling stripper, haha. Reply ↓ bguizol September 26, 2019 • 1:00 AM Haha, good point. Well, I wish you good luck then :p chan.kit.sg September 27, 2019 • 3:28 AM what a lively shot! Reply ↓ Earl Goodson September 28, 2019 • 12:26 PM I agree; their smiles are enormous! Reply ↓ Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
