If there were such things as fairy lands and they were modelled after human metropolises, they would probably look something like the captures in Takashi Kitajima's photography portfolio. Full of magical lights and vibrant colors, he concentrates heavily on bokeh, a style of blur found often in photography.

Born in Nerima and based in Tokyo, Japan, Takashi Kitajima is a computer engineer by day and a photographer by night. A saying that is even more appropriate here considering that most of his images are shot at night. Although Takashi Kitajima's work does seem a little more exaggerated when it comes to the use of bokeh, it is hard to question the reality of each scene due to their beauty.
