You've captured real essence here. I did business in Japan many years ago, and memories flow back. Particularly the "Monk at Shinjuk" image, it's the people who always are longest remembered. Fine work.
After several years here, I'm finally succumbing to the reality that maintaining a presence both at SmugMug and Flickr is impossible. Just not enough hours in the day. It's been the better part of a year since I've tended to my SmugMug account, so this is the site to go. I almost dropped-out last year for the same reason, came back, but now realizing the time truly has come. Many thanks for commenting on my work, and best of success in your future shooting. If you care to keep tabs, search word at Flickr is "RovingEyePhoto". All my work is there, over 30 mods and counting, with continual uploads every few weeks, all in modeled-street and related indoor style. Please don't be a stranger, receiving others' observations is the most sure route to improving our art.
