Seasons Greetings

I’ve been insanely busy and now just catching up (Merry Christmas, by the way). I hope everyone has a relaxing holidays, and a happy New Year. Below is a picture of a door decoration that is typical of Japan for the New Year. This image (without the writing) is available at my agent’s website, Asian Photo Connection.

Also, it’s been about a year of the Japanese Photos blog. I wasn’t sure if I should do this, but a year later it seems like it was naturally the right decision. Thanks to you, the readers, for coming to look and read, I hope you’ve enjoyed this. 2010 has been great for me, and I hope that 2011 will be even better for all of us.

Film Scanner needed

Want a good deal on images? I am in desperate need of a film scanner, as all the local scanning services are now abhorrently awful! I now really need my own scanner. Here, I made an announcement offering “free stock images” (actually, images-for-trade). I now really need a sponsor or trader who can send me the professional-level scanner that is needed. The precise scanner I need is listed in the above link, and as it states there, that for particular trades of equivalent monetary value, you can get access to an entire gallery of images on my PhotoShelter account.

For one Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED (USD$1,800 to $2,200), you get one month of unrestricted access* to one gallery in my PhotoShelter account, which allows for twelve months of Rights Managed use. Though, considering my urgent need, I can negotiate.

* Non-transferable.
