  4. Congratulations on your nomination Takami, it is very much deserved. Your photographs have served well as part of the inspiration for my own photography. Like you, I’m only an amateur with the desire to get even better. Between my writing and my photography, I’m finally enjoying a world where I can express the beauty I have always seen, but have never been able to tell anyone about. 🙂

    • Thank you David 🙂 I was very surprised by Sally’s nomination. Unfortunately, I don’t participate in the award process, but the thought is truly appreciated 🙂

      The best ‘awards’ for me is to receive nice comments like yours, and if folks genuinely like my photos. I’m honored if some of my work has inspired you, as you’ve done the same for me. Looking forward to another great year with you.

      It’s finally sunny in Tokyo 😀

    • Hello Sally,
      Thank you so much for your kind consideration & nomination. I am delighted to know you found my work to be a source of inspiration 🙂 Unfortunately, I don’t participate in the award process, but I truly appreciate it. I also appreciate how you even re-blogged some of my posts last year, and left comments on some of my photos. Thanks again, and I look forward to another great year with you!
      Best wishes,
      Takami
