I’ve always wanted to get a nice shot to show the horrors of a Japanese subway commute; horrors largely greeted with resignation by most Tokyoites. So, using my compact stealth camera, I figure I’ll snap a few on the train.
However, I don’t count on this one staunch defender of public privacy:
You have to imagine me against the carriage wall, raising my arm near to roof to take the shot in a manner I incorrectly believe is discreet.
Discreet to mortals, perhaps. Oh, he gives me a glaring like you wouldn’t believe:
He generates a sublime look of dignified suspicion, which Google tells me has happened only 14 times in recorded history.
Kudos, curiously dignified commuter! I feel slightly bad and will never try it again. If I see you on the same train as me.
