Self-portrait in Tokyo_1998

Self-portrait in Tokyo_1998

This is one of the first 'arty' photographs I ever took in my whole life, just after I bought my first Canon SLR and was learning how to take 'proper' photos.
I like the fact that this photo reminds me of the time I literally got lost walking around Tokyo, and stumbled upon this architecturally-crazy, space-age college in the middle of a traditional residential area, and I had read about this building in architecture school (it is the Aoyama Technical College) and here I was standing in front of it out of sheer chance and bad navigation!
