NO MORE GROUP INVITATIONS, please. If it is first time that you came across my gallery and if you have some time, please see my 5 '*24' tags: My best shots, My favorite Japan, My favorite Kyoto, My favorite night shots and My favorite Tokyo. These combinations are constantly updated. I'm a Japanese male working as a freelance in IT industry. Currently I'm working for several companies for Linux/Windows server management, supporting Windows/Mac clients and developing small software like management script for Google Apps and internal utility tools (mainly) written in Python. At home, I'm not using Windows nor Mac. I'm using Debian GNU/Linux (stable and/or testing). I like travel in Japan mainly by rail. I like specific regions like Kyushu, San-In, Kyoto, Nara and Hokuriku. Living in Tokyo near Shinjuku. As a hobby photographer, I take snapshot of ordinary Japanese life like streets, onsen (spa), small cities and so on. In Panoramio, I want to show variety scenes of Japanese life. So every page of my gallery is different.. My most viewed photo is a beautiful snapshot of Mount Fuji took from airplane (my profile picture), but that was an exception. I'm not that good. I was just lucky and that's only coincidence. Older photos without any comment might be deleted in some time. Currently I'm using Olympus E-P1/E-M5 (m4/3). Recent photos taken in RAW (.ORF) format and processed with Darktable, UFraw, Luminance HDR and GIMP (because I'm a linux user).

Hi, dear friend, all these years Panoramio was for me unforgettable experience, bearing a lot of beauty from all over the world, many ideas for new trips and especially many new friendships! Panoramio was a wonderful community of people who appreciate the loveliness in the world around us and who is able to share it with others. I wish you from all my heart happiness, health and success, many trips, great pictures and emotions! I’m glad that we became friends and I’m sending my Facebook profile - I'll be glad if we continue to share photos and impressions! I hope we can preserve a piece of our facebook There is also our Latest Petition in, recent history is proving, that only with petitions we can't do anything, if Google doesn't want to hear anymore our voices, but we have to try! Please share this message with your contacts, any mail and any signature counts!

Скъпи приятели, през всички изминали години Панорамио беше за мен, както сигурно и за повечето от вас незабравимо изживяване, носещо много красота от всички кътчета на света, много идеи за нови пътешествия и най-вече много нови приятелства! Панорамио беше прекрасна общност от хора, ценящи хубавото в света около нас и умеещи да го споделят с другите. Желая от сърце много щастие, здраве и успехи, още много пътувания, чудесни снимки и емоции! Радвам се, че станахме приятели и изпращам профил във Фейсбук - ще се радвам, ако продължим да споделяме там снимки и впечатления! Надявам се въпреки малката вероятност да запазим Панорамио, да успеем да съхраним частица от нашата общност. .my facebook Все пак добре е да опитаме да се борим още веднъж Latest Petition in, recent history is proving, that only with petitions we can't do anything, if Google doesn't want to hear anymore our voices, but we have to try!

Nice view!


I joined Panoramio at May, 2011. And it was a great time with you! Thank you for sharing many years, with everyone of us and so many emotions. Community Panoramio was a great family and place where there weren't divisions based on gender, age or religion, but only love of beauty and love for Mother Earth. It was a privilege and an great honor to meet you and see the most different and beautiful places on earth through yours photos. Now, through our friendly communication each of us has many, many friends. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for every moment when I lived here. My kindest regards to you and I wish you all the best in the world.

I say goodbye and I'm sure we will meet on other websites...
