It’s your turn now

Dear regular readers, commenters, watchers and listeners,

Isn’t it about time we got to know each other better? Now that you know what my family and I look like, I’d really like to you look like. Seriously. I mean it. I read all your comments but have no idea who the heck you are.

Links to photos in the comments, please. If you can’t show your face in public because you’re wanted by the authories or you’re just too butt ugly, you can upload a photo via the contact page.

  1. @Mike: I have to say, I’m always surprised when I hear from people like you–visits frequently but never leaves a comment. What surprises me most is that people like you are invariably really, really nice–like the rest who come here.

  2. @Rich – The bottom picture is around 10 years old, that might be why. The top 2 are about 2 years old. I look about the same though. Never got that comment that none of my pics look like the same person πŸ™‚

  3. @Ben: No sabes que hablo espanol tal como hablo japones? El castellano fue mi especializacion en la universidad.

    Autumn is the best time to visit Japan, provided you don’t arrive while we’re getting hit with a typhoon. Over the next few months is the best time to visit.

  4. @Ventura: Sorry you had so much trouble trying to post a comment. I’m not sure what happened, but I found your posts in the spam bin.

    Are you planning on coming to Japan again sometime?

  5. @Chris: Wow, I covet your Nikon D80. The color saturation and sharpness of your images is amazing. The look like professionally scanned 35mm slides.

    Seriously, I’m going to start saving my money.

  6. Thanks Rich. I think it’s the lens as much as anything – the Nikon 18-200VR is beautiful – expensive, but I’m hoping it’s the last lens I ever need to buy..

    You might want to take a look at the D40 as well – lighter, cheaper and the reviews say the quality is up there with the D80. If I were buying again I’d definitely give it some serious consideration, as the D80 is a bit heavy.

  7. The D40 I’m pretty sure won’t auto bracket exposures, which would mean no HDR photography. That lens is expensive, but it does the job of at least 3 or 4, and cuts down on how much you need to carry, including a tripod.

  8. Hey Rich. I haven’t commented since Spring semester, but I read every once in a while. I’ve been busy / on really slow internet, so I have cut back a lot on wasting time on the internets. I’m going to Japan on Monday. Maybe we can chill when I take a weekend trip to Tokyo. Here’s a picture of me.
    If you want to read my blog here it is. (Hint: It’ll get more interesting when I am in Japan.)
