Hello Kebin and Hiroko,
Having just returned from a long trip to Austria and the Italian Dolomites, I just wanted to write and thank you for your nice words to our photographs.
We were glad to hear from you again.
Hope all is well in your parts,
thanks for commenting once more!
you've got an excellent memory:-)) ---- yes, I left fc with no intention to return, but fotography is like a drug and also the communication with all the nice and interesting people in fc, so I couldn't but come back ...and 'Ive found you and your extraordinary photos again:-))))
I very much appreciate your words about how the Japanese feel after 11/3/11 , what gives them the strength to cope with a catastrophe of dimensions so far unknown in their history.
I understand it is the deep and spiritual love for nature which makes your people accept that nature is not only so beautiful but that its forces can also be destructive which helps you to recover and to look forward - as described by you with poetic words.
I admire the mentality of the Japanese which is so different from ours.
I have been admiring the Japanese culture for years.
I feel with your people and with my Japanese friends here.
thank you Kevin for your touching words!
