Someone lost a cell phone and a good samaritan left it sitting on a post. Where else but Japan would that happen?

A bit formal probably but offered only with the best and respectful wishes.

And that is one fine lookin' bride!

That's gotta be one of the most disgusting caption & photo combinations I've ever seen...gawd!

But definitely hilarious. :sadomaso:

Wish I had my zoom lens at this point - would have been a beautiful moment.

Was scrolling through your work thinking, "Is that Kiyomizudera? It looks like Kiyomizudera." Sho'nuff.

Kyoto - one of my favourite places on the planet!

Great work as always, mate :bow-pray:

You do have talent aquamarine, I don't think there is any doubt in that. I do enjoy some pictures more than others but that is more likely due to personal preference rather than anything else. Some of your most mundane pictures of ordinary items take on a life of their own, I am enchanted by that. The way you can just take a picture of piece of candy or a plate of food and make it seem important and worthy of more than just the casual glance I would normally give such an item. You should find a way to make a buck at doing that, you are truly gifted there.

The city shots are normally spectactular and sometimes breathtaking. they are usually my favorites. I hear some photographers sell their work in galleries to the public, maybe you should see your agent about that.

Funny enough it is when it comes to your photographs of people that I find are most often hit and miss with me. When you get it right, (in my poor uneducated view of that anyway), it is a work of art that I would hang on my wall. When you don't I guess it is still better than I could do on any given day with any given equipment, so no shame there either.

Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us here, it makes my visits to Akiba-Online more enjoyable.

For the last three of you gentlemen (or women?), I appreciate your input and am happy to share a portion of my life here with you all. That said, I wonder if anyone would care to see what a wedding in Tokyo is like. I have no problem sharing images of my family and friends, and as those of you who have added me, I'm a simple person to find on Facebook (several users here have added me over the last few years).

I try not to hide and have kept my professional and personal life fairly open to those interested in it. So, if you would like, I'll gladly share the photos from our $60,000 wedding here.

Cheers

So, you have no problem sharing your airsoft outings with us, (whch look fun I admit), but you question my interest in your wedding pictures? Please share the photos of your joyful union here with us. (I am curious who performed the ceremony or did I miss that somewhere....)
