  1. Thanx for the follow! Love that your blog is award free. I’ve stopped accepting them when I realized that they all required you to nominate others. There should be an award that is aimed ant not building readership. Just simply given, no expectations. 🙂

    • Thank you very much for your visit and comment! And please excuse my belated reply (having some internet issues…).
      I’m very happy to follow your site and learn a little more about your adventures. You’re always welcome to visit, too 🙂
      And, I completely agree with you regarding blog awards 😀
      Wishing you a great week ahead,
      Takami

  3. You have a great eye for photography, now your probably the 5 photographer I follow. Always been interrested in photography, actually interested in a lot of things, but for now focusing on writing, so I´m glad you stopped by and little by little I do get certain tips here and there about photography which hopefully one day I can dedicate it more time. Believe it or not I don´t own a camera, so it would be nice to start with buying one if not I doubt I´ll ever start 🙂

    • Thank you very much for your kind words, and for choosing to follow my site! I understand how much time we must dedicate to one craft, and might not get around to other interests. But, you can always start photography at anytime, it’s never too late 😉 I look forward to following your writing with great interest too 🙂

    • Hello my friend,
      You are too kind 😀 Thank you very much for your kind words.
      I hope you and your family have a lovely weekend 🙂
      (I will check out more of the documentary films you recommended on your blog)

      Warm wishes,
      Takami

    • Hello Anica, thank you so much for stopping by, and for choosing to follow my journey. I am delighted you enjoyed some of my work, and me too, I look forward to following you on your photo adventures too! 🙂 Best wishes 🙂

    • Hello 🙂
      Thank you very much for your visit, and choosing to follow my blog.
      I currently use a Canon Eos Kiss x5 DSLR camera for my photography adventures. I hope you’ll stop by again 😀
      Best wishes!

  4. Thank you for following my blog. Your photos always bring a smile to my face. One thing I was wondering is that when I click on favorite photos on the left I only get the photo but there’s no place to comment. These photos you posted are amazing! 🙂

    • Thank you very much for your kind comment! It’s a pleasure to know my photos can bring a smile to your face (that’s the best compliment!) 🙂 My apologies for the inconvenience with the ‘selected images’ section. I have updated it, so that when you click the image, it should allow you to leave a comment. All of the images are also featured on my regular blog posts, too 😀

  5. the photographer who makes the most mistakes,learns the most! My advice to you on your journey to become a professional is to make as many mistakes as possible………….learn from them & try not to repeat!

  6. Hello T Ibara, My name is Edwin Colón, I am a writer of novels and short stories. I have been visited your posts, and your art is amazing. I loved it. If you want and give me your permission I will love to write a short story or a poem of one of your post. Of course, putting your copyright and linking your blog. I have more than 500 posts in my blog and a hundred of them are inspired in photos or paintings of diverse artists around the world. Let me know if you accept my request. 🙂

  7. I do enjoy seeing your pictures. I was blessed to visit Japan while I was in the US Navy. It is a beautiful; country. I visited Tokyo, Yokosuka, and Yokohama back in 1969. Jim from Texas in the USA.

  8. 動物写真家。。。いい響きですよね。憧れます。
    私も動物大好きです。こちらで動物の撮り方のお勉強させてもらいますので、どうぞよろしくお願いします。

    See you.

  12. Hi, Takami! You’ve just been nominated for The Shauny Award for Excellence in Blogging! (Yes, there really is such a thing.) Alas, no honor comes without its obligations. See my today’s post, December 9, in “The Getting Old Blog,” (www.ninamishkin.com) for instructions on what to do next. 🙂

  13. Hi Takami! And greetings from cold England!! Mark and I are well and have been delighted to receive your recent postcards…one is on the way back that Mark took and made into a postcard…and a long letter will be in the mail from me shortly. We have both enjoyed your wordpress blog! Much love and best wishes to you! Your friend, Lucy 🙂

    • Hello Lucy! So glad you stopped by! I have just sent you an e-mail, but thank you so much for viewing my photos, and for your comment. I’ll look forward to your postcard & letter (how exciting). Love and best wishes to you and Mark too 🙂

  14. You are definitely a ‘real photographer’, you have great sensitivity and empathy for your subjects, especially the animals 🙂
