What I found most common amongst the Japanese I have met.
This image is from 1981 when I first visited Japan. Scanned from an old print (I haven’t found the 35mm negative yet).

Being in my 60’s, I am a latecomer to photography. Yet I have found great satisfaction and pleasure in creating digital art from my photographs. Taking pictures was a hobby until surgery in 2001 left me disabled and gave me the opportunity to learn about digital art and photographic software. I’ve been selling my work online and through local galleries since 2009.

    What a wonderful piece! I love how you use the SC to bring them out. They are fighting strong right now as we speak, and looking out for each other.
