Extremely Blue

Those who have been in Roppongi (an area of Tokyo) recently will likely have seen this outdoor light installation, and will realize that all the white lights mixed in with the blue above are really blue lights that were so bright that they “blew out” all the color channels on my camera's digital sensor, leaving only white.

For those not having seen it in person, let's just say that it was a really, really blue area.

it’s so blue it hurts! yoko and i were at midtown one night and went to see the display. but afdter a few minutes the intensity of the blue lights became uncomfortable. it took
away from the rest of the illumination. after the blue lights we appreciated the natural
colors and low light on the walk back to the station entrance….
