I've always had an artistic side to me, and once I moved to Japan I took on photography more on a whim than anything else, but been in love with it ever since.
My friends can attest to how dedicated I am, because I've dragged some of them along in the middle of freezing cold just to take 'one more photo' which in reality means a 'few more hours'. Luckily they are nice friends so they still talk to me.
