"Hachioji Bus, Tozai Line, Shinjuku, Ebisu, Seibu Line, Etc."

This batch of clips is not in exact chronological order, but includes views from Hachioji, Shinjuku, Ebisu and several train lines - including the Tozai, Seibu, Chuo, and Yamanote lines.

This will likely be the last post of 2010.  It's been an interesting year and artistically productive, but a financial disaster.  2011 - from the vantage point of December 31st, 2010 - looks to contain some seriously stormy weather, but even more than that, there are huge questions about what direction things will take.  There are good and bad trends in force, so... so... what to say?  I'll soldier on and hopefully things will head in a good direction.
