  1. oh, and congrats on ur 1000th blog post!!!! XD

  2. Great snaps!! I especially like the waterfalls at the foot of Mt Fuji! You should try to sell some of these to the postcard makers in Japan! :-)

  3. I've been snapping a series of panoramic shots on my recent trips around. Hmmm... maybe a coffee table book?!?!

  4. Wow, the Shiraito-no-Ttaki Waterfalls shot is breathtaking! I also like the Tōdai-ji (東大寺) Eastern Great Temple. There's a mystic feel to it due to the fog. It captured the serenity and solidarity of the temple. Thanks!
