    There's an old Wim Wenders documentary called "Tokyo-Ga" from the 70s (?) that this reminds me of. . . even though it was shot in BW.

    It was about the radical shift of culture post-WWII from Samurai era to chrome and glass and luring in consumers with all kinds of razzle dazzle. Noisy Pachinko gambling parlors, lit glass storefronts, games, toys, fast trains, multi-decker driving golf ranges, tiny sleeping hives barely bigger than coffins for cheap rental. . . Was like it was all designed like they were aiming for Buckminster Fuller's geodesic dome, and ended up existing in a mirrored disco ball.

    It wasn't horrible, only shocking. I definitely can see how so many sci-fi artists and writers got much inspiration for future worlds from Tokyo. Ridley Scott's movie version Bladerunner, William Gibson's Neuromancer, Ghost in the Machine kinds of stuff.

    Anyway, your picture has this kind of feel for the color, the lighting and many of the shapes which suggest that all to my free ranging mind. Very cool. I like the value range especially in the context of what I'm reading into it.

    D Akey... interesting analysis.. I was definitely thinking of a sci-fi futuristic horizon maybe a 500 years in the future... from your kibitz on Radio Music I added quite a bit more contrast and heightened colors for an edgy look as well has more sharp points and electronic feel.... i think that helped this work get the point across. nothing organic here.. .. thanks my friend for your invaluable help..

    It's pretty clear there's all the necessary equipment, instruments and gauges to accurately and exhaustively perceive reality according to the scientific method, but I'm sure that the intuitive and holistic apprach would anyhow tell something fundamental You would never capture by analyses ...
    Magnificent one!
