Surreal Tokyo: "In Motion," by Aaron Grimes (VIDEO)

Tokyo in Motion - AkihabaraNews.com

Awesomeness Fatigue
It's easy to grow accustomed to the bombast of everyday life here in Tokyo, and after a time, it's actually an imperative. Constant, effusive elation at the trains being on time, the streets being so clean, and how non-intuitively safe it is to inhabit the world's largest city - well, it can grate on one's peers.

Eventually, as it must, the fantastical simply fades into a rote, mundane background of one's day-to-day. That being that, however, it's also nice to get an occasional reminder of how beautiful the city can be.

In Motion
Photographer and videographer Aaron Grimes' In Motion elegantly captures what the majority of Tokyo's denizens probably take for granted. Using a Photoshop technique that blends single frames of video, a passing taxi cab, a man in a train, a girl waiting at the station - they become dreamscapes; something probably very similar to how we'll remember Tokyo if we ever leave.
