Waiting for the train at Sasazuka

It's the first Saturday in weeks that we've not been submerged in snow. No blizzard today, just very clear skies. In fact, the huge mounds of snow dotted around the streets now appear out of place.

The strong, late-afternoon light casts fantastic shadows, but with high-rise buildings in abundance, it can be somewhat short-lived.
