just like one of my other favourite photographers, Hitoshi Ishihara, the next two photographers i want to share with you also take beautiful photos of their children and family, as well as wonderful shots throughout Japan.

the first four pictures are by Pola-Life, who takes adorable pictures of his little girl!

and the last eight are by Hideaki Hamada, living in the quaint city of Osaka. i just love his mix of country life and city life together in his photos. you can also see his blog, and music project.





. . .








...also, i am thinking about getting involved in the art fundraiser going on this friday in Chinatown, for the "first fridays" event where art galleries are on display for the public. my colleges art department is having a fundraiser in one of the galleries, and is asking the drawing students if they want to showcase live drawing sessions with the models for the public to view us as we're working.....i'm not sure if i want to do it though...

i think it would be a great opportunity and it sounds really fun, but i don't really enjoy 'first fridays' as they're overly packed with people (i'm a bit claustrophobic). and i have never drawn in front of a live audience before, except my studio classes, so i'm very nervous... i have until thursday to make a decision...?

hamada-san's work is beautiful, he certainly knows how to capture his kids.

oh, i say go for that "first friday" thing. events like that will no doubt open doors you didn't know where even there.

The aesthetics of the photos are definitely heartwarming and precious...

As for "First Friday," it could be a great experience and opportunity to expose your artwork. I don't mean to add anymore pressure, but I think you should try it out as well, and it's for a good cause--beneficial for you and your college's fundraiser! I understand how you feel, though, about being watched when you're at work, but you shouldn't let that stop you! :)

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
