This is Taka, we met him while doing our On a Wednesday interviews last week. He was quite charming and emailed this after returning home to Japan.
It’ Taka, a japanese you met on the Brooklyn bridge Wednesday last week.
I hope you remember me and also that you took some pictures of me there.
Now I’m back to Tokyo.
I see your weblog and find what a wonderful photographer I got accquainted with, and how lucky I was to get you to take those pictures.
They remind me of my travel in NY and make me happy.
Your weblog is filled with a lots of beautifully designed photos, isn’t it?
As I love designation, I love your weblog also.
Since I went to NY in order to be inspired by lots of intersting things,
I can’t help appreciating the great meeting you on that bridge I really wanted to visit.
Any way I’d like to express my appreciation to you.
and I’d appreciate it if I could keep touch in with you.
I’ll frame photos you took.
That was a day-maker right there.

Spent the first week of my freelance life at Disneyland for their #DisneySide world premier event. Check out the Pinterest board I created to show how I celebrate my Disney Side. Not a bad start to this new life.
n. the frustration of photographing something amazing when thousands of identical photos already exist—the same sunset, the same waterfall, the same curve of a hip, the same closeup of an eye—which can turn a unique subject into something hollow and pulpy and cheap, like a mass-produced piece of furniture you happen to have assembled yourself.
