Mount Fuji and Shinjuku in black and white

If you ever visit the Bunkyo Civic Center and go up to its observatory, look out towards Shinjuku and if you have been blessed by the weather gods, you might see Mt. Fuji beyond the skyscrapers. You do need to be really lucky though. When I took this picture I was hoping to get a nice sunset picture but my time was really limited and I couldn’t wait anymore, so I settled for what I could get. The colour version wasn’t quite what I wanted so I decided to convert it to a black and white. It looks ominous - very cool!
