Hakuho was winning to Asashoryu and he is younger and extremely calm. Asashoryu was anyway on his way out.

Yubaru& others, even the antique Fukushima power plants were not critically damaged by a many times stronger earthquake. The tsunami dealt them the deadly blow.

Canon 20D (yeah, antique by today's standards, but still kicking hard). Raw file (.cr2) and many hours in Photoshop adjusting colours (I was shooting fur a Velvia-like look). It's a single shot, with no added (copy pasted) elements. This image's purpose was to be printed really large (A2), therefore the dipped horizont adds to the perspective.

LOL, do you see scary faces?

Well,I guess you're right :) . Yes,I have spent a good part of my childhood in darkrooms (some of them even improvised in tiny toilets). Indeed, digital makes things easier to fix nowadays.

JapanGal, Henry-Cartier Breson always insisted on printing the whole surface of the exposed film: margins, lens flaws, warts and all. He had a reason for this...

JapanGal, no professional in its right mind would advise"save as jpg". Unsharp mask after size reduction, for a generally soft picture? Er, how about no?
Oh, I'm an amateur, but I published in a few books, just to get my lenses paid...

Sorry Damon,. but this is not a 30 second exposure. I've done many of them, and you can't possibly see waves in the reflection of the Fujisan there..
Nevertheless, a very nice picture.

Actually her stupidity might play a role as well. I feel the quality of TV announcers is dropping day by day.. Yes, being a former hostess does not automatically qualify one for becoming an announcer, and yes, it could actually disqualify...
Posted in: Your history is not appropriate to work as an announcer, a position that requires a person of integrity.

Fadamor, you have little idea about coffee. Good Arabica coffee is never bitter, but syrupy and a bit sweet, and leaves an aftertaste, depending on origin, of licorice, nuts or dried fruits. You get bitter sludge in over extracted burnt, not roasted coffee only (charbucks included). Or in much cheaper Robusta coffee.

The truth being said, one does not know how coffee tastes until one tries an old style Japanese Kalita (or even an American chemex), with some hand roasted batch of city-roast Arabica. Charbucks will never reach that level...

As a good looking white male, living in Japan for more than 10 years, I can say, yes, a good looking white male can basically come to Tokyo, go to most of the Roppongi bars, do EXACTLY the things described in this video, and will only get laughs (and probably laid in the end). Jealous?

Why exactly was he arrested? If someone would he clinching his/her hand on my car's door, I would certainly drive away. If they wouldn't let go, I would drive even further. Am I responsible for the life of my aggressor?

I was never into it, until a friend let me have a shot from a 10.000 yen bottle of Yamazaki (couldn't say how old, but it was single malt). It felt like alcoholic honey, not choking and full of different aromas. Very strong and extremely pleasant...
