thank you !!



First of all thank you so much for the wonderful comments and suggestions from my last post...my confession and for all the other photos I posted. I really apprecate all of it and I want to say I love reading them all.

Finally, I have decided that I can't go on posting daily. Im sorry , my city dp family if Im leaving you sooner. I still would like to share photos of the city I came to love with you so I made a new photo blog. Its not a daily ( of course ) , nor weekly or monthly . I'll be posting if I have something good, lovely or interesting to share with you.

I will also continue to visit the dp blogs , and you will always be in my links. I would also be very happy if you visit me and leave comments too. Oh, and I would be grateful if you add my new blog to your links. Thank you in advance!!

nice place for a confession



placid

Taken a few weeks back, when hubby and me went driving around the countryside. This is a dam , sorry I forgot the name. It was so quiet and peaceful here !!

Anyway I have a confession. I recently have been thinking quitting daily photo blogging. Its been difficult sometimes for me, coz there are days that I dont even want to open my pc. I'm supposed to be on vacation but still I am ever so busy. I have other blogs but they are not daily so its not really a pressure posting nonsense there. I've confided with hubby even and he suggested I continue posting pictures but not on a daily basis. Hahhhh ( sigh !) I want to stop but I feel like Im going to betray the dp family. I feel guilty already!

Akita daily is sick, that I can tell you. Especially with this pop-ups now bugging me..whew!!
While I can't decide I will continue posting ............

bespectacled beauties



bespectacled beauties

This is a remnant of my izumi festival photos and I know I've already shown you many yukata pictures but I personally like this photo very much. The simple beauty and grace of these 2 young ladies are so refreshing compared to many fully made-up beauties. I remember my youth, hahhhh!!

Houses here are mostly gray and dark that whenever I see a lively colored house I feel happy. This is not actually a home thoough , but a small restaurant .

watching the seas



watching the seas

Sometimes the coast guard allows us ..land people to visit their floating abode. This is inside one of their ships docked at the tzuchizaki port area .

A tribute to the brave men who guards our seas from people like " capt. jack sparrow " and " davie jones " !!

Have a nice weekend to all !!

nature is beautiful





" The goal of life is living in agreement with nature "

Zeno 335 BC ~ 264 BC
from ... Diogenes Laertius

I am so sorry dear visitors for not posting for a couple of days ! Japan has just finished " obon " , I think its the equivalent of all souls day in other parts of the world. Time to remember and pay respects to dead ancestors . Hubby had a 5 day off from work , some got more...others none at all. Being the " chonan " or the first born son , its obligatory that we return to their ancestral home during holidays. Sadly, there's no internet or even a pc there. Yes , even if Japan is now modern and a techno leader we are still very patriarchal. And I , being a " yome san " , or bride of the chonan helped the mom in her duties....that is to prepare food and cater to the malehood and other duties.

walt whitman 1819 ~ 1892

This is a nice way to enjoy nature too .... during the hot summer days.

。。。 happi 。。。



matsuri attire

Not to be confused with the english word. " Happi " is what that matsuri guy is wearing . I like to call it happi coat, hahah! The socks they are wearing are called " tabi " while the sandals are called " geta ". Sorry because I dont know what that short pants that looks to me like underpants are called. I think our male dp bloggers will look good in this attire.

Sorry I didnt have time to post yesterday. It was one of those days ....
