'Nuff said.

Have a good week/Easter/April Fools day!

#caturday   #monday  Photo: Nevermore

Another shot taken from the #GPlusPhotowalkJapan  / #GPlus2YearAnniversary  photowalk a couple weeks back.

We couldn't have asked for a better day weather-wise for Google's 2 year anniversary photowalk.  More to come, as I get the time to upload...

Title idea courtesy +Tim Buerger ;)

Happy Monday, time to get ready for work!

Settings: D800E / 105mm / f2.8 / ISO 100 / 1/800s

#plusphotoextract   #blackandwhite   #Japan  Photo: Coming in for a landing

Just another quick one from the #GPlus2YearAnniversary  photowalk.  Posting stuff that I don't have to do much editing with, this was a spur of the moment shot when I saw some pigeons coming in to land above our heads.

Now, to bed!

Goodnight from Tokyo!

Settings: D800E / ISO 100 / f2.8 / 105mm / 1/2500s

#Japan   #Tokyo  Photo: Ducks in a Row

Not sure how well this photo works.  I feel that there's a lot of distraction from too many elements in the image.. but I went ahead and processed/uploaded because I liked the ducks.  :P

And yes, it's another from the #Gplus2YearAnniversary  photowalk!

So, time to go off to work, have you made sure you've got all your ducks in a row for today?  ;)

#Tokyo   #Japan   #Ducks   #Nature   #Reflections  Photo: Biker cat

I know I posted this one to the #GPlus2YearAnniversary  group album before, but I wanted this in my own album as well since I rather liked it.  Plus, I was taking care of 4 cats this weekend, so it seemed fitting.

This weekend went by too fast... Monday again, and time to head off to work.. (T_T)

Settings: D800E / ISO 200 / 105mm / f3 / 1/200s

#blackandwhite   #cat   #Tokyo   #Japan  Photo: Moth Skipper

Yes, just a photo of a -moth- skipper butterfly :P

Taken just before joining the D&C group on Saturday, unfortunately rather low quality since I didn't have my macro lens on my D800 and had to take this with the X10.

Still, the little guy (girl?) is kinda cute.  :)

G'night from Tokyo!

Settings: X10 on super macro mode / f2 / ISO100 / 1/125s

#moth  Photo: Whatchu lookin` at?

This dragonfly (or "tombo", in Japanese) was pretty patient as I edged closer and closer to take his photo.  Though he did seem to be glaring at me...

Can't help but think that this little fellow is looking almost guiltily at me, as if he was caught taking one too many sips of nectar.  ;-)

#Flora   #Fauna   #insectphotography   #Japan  Photo: Not a peep

It's been way too long since my last post; the usual work amongst other things.  :(

One thing I've been trying to work on is revamping my website.  I use wordpress, and I had a nice fullscreen theme that I was using.  However as it wasn't maintained/updated (it was freeware), it gradually experienced various compatibility issues with plugins and WP in general.  I've since gone back to the default WP theme.

Currently trying to find another theme that I'd be happy with, but haven't had much luck so far.  Anyone have any recommendations for a good photography-based WP theme?  ;)

I've been looking at getting someone via http://fiverr.com/ to help me- has anyone used them before and have someone on there that they can recommend?

G'night from Tokyo!

I'd taken this some time ago, not sure what made me remember it today.  Good night all, hope you have a good week!
