    Pix4Japan here! I love your latest podcast and just realized that I could follow along with the images on my iPhone. Truly inspirational shots. I appreciate the time you take to explain the lenses and camera settings used. I hope to visit the garden myself and test myself and my gear to see I I understood you enough to replicate similar shots and then apply those skills to my own compositions in the field at my favorite locations!

      Hi Daisei (aka Robert),

      That’s one cool Japanese name you have there. Are you nationalized or is it just for fun? When I became a Japanese citizen I chose to write my name as 平俐マーティン, but the 平俐 I read as Beiri, the same as my original name.

      I’m pleased you found the images. Many people don’t realize that you can do that, even though I mention it once a month or so. It’s just not obvious. If you ever come over to Jindai try to let me know a day or so in advance and I’ll come and try to meet you there. It’s only a fifteen-minute drive from where I live.

      Have fun!
