A Real Photograph of Brett Niver!
Here it is, a photo of the semifictitious Brett Niver standing
in front of the Kaminari Mon in Asakusa, Tokyo with Russ and Rieko Stutler.
By the way, Brett and Russ have written a best selling book called How
to Blend in With the Crowd in Japan.
Q Why does it look like the light is coming from different
Questions about this photograph
A There is more than one sun in Japan.
Q Why do you look so unnatural?
A Maybe we drank too much coffee.
Q I never see people looking like that in Asakusa.
A I went back to Asakusa on a typical day and took another photograph
of the people there. Here it is:
As you can see, there are many people in Asakusa who look like that. Actually,
I must confess that I am being a bit dishonest because this was no ordinary
day; it was the annual Brett Niver look alike contest. But still, I think
this proves that I did not change the photographs in any way.
