Nice sky! I love your composition.
I have been away from my camera lately, and it's really killing me!
Your photo did motivate me!

Nice pictures, have you made the switch from Film to Digital? If so your black and white photos are great. I would never think Digital could match the depth of field and power of 5x7, 4x5, and 8x10 large film format cameras could. But, it would seem digital has caught up with 35mm in most aspect at 6 and half pixels at least for smaller photos and maybe 10 to 15 pixels for larger photos(no not billboards).

Great work and keep it up!

【Misaさんへ】 Yeah, I've barely taken any photos in the past several weeks, so I kind of know what you mean. I'm glad you felt motivated, though.

【Brianさんへ】 Yeah, I've just got a Canon point-and-shoot, but it's a decent little camera. I'm pretty pleased with the advancements in the field of digital photography and hope that I can pick up a DSLR someday.

DSLR, are one of few electronics that one can buy cheaper in Japan, than in the states. (Unless, of course the electronic in question is something only sold in Japan that would cost you more to send to the states than to come here and buy.)

On online line sites like: Amazon.co.jp and Rakuten one can find DSLR cheaper than outside of Japan. For I recently saw a Nikon D300 with kit lens and SD card for under 400USD.

However, your blog does make me feel like blogging again, but I am so- lazy when it comes to blogging.

Opps, typo in the above post. I meant Nikon D3000 not (D300).

And, one more thing. Jonathan's photos are eye catching because he has a good visualization and an artistic eye. The mark of a good artist, pianist, or whatever, is that he/she can make a masterpiece with any tool.

"If you can shoot well, all you need is a disposable, toy camera or a camera phone to create great work. If you're not talented, it doesn't matter if you buy a Nikon D3X or Leica; your work will still be uninspired."
from 'your camera doesn't matter' found here http://www.kenrockwell.com

Having said that I still like Nikon and Pentax because of build quality.

Thanks for the kind compliments, Brian. I really appreciate it. Things have been a bit down around these parts recently, so I've been taking more photos of late. It feels good.

Whenever I get to Japan, perhaps I should check out some DSLRs for sale. (Like I'll have the money!)
