Photography hobbyist Takashi Kitajima is already known on Illusion for his Bokeh-technique shots of Tokyo; colorful circles fill his camera lens and we see a different view of the Japanese city at night. Continuing with his nighttime photography he takes new cityscape pictures, but this time placing a magnifying glass in front of the camera—creating a Sherlock Holmes mystery vibe.
