A Picture’s worth 1000 words, right?

, originally uploaded by Riceboy.

So, its been a while, no? I got the idea from a friend to start video blogging and then posting them up on Xanga, so I took a video the other day, only to realize I can’t find the cord to transfer it! The story of my life it would seem…

Either way, what inspired me to post today was a picture I saw on Flickr, by this guy I know who lives in Seoul, Korea. (Tron, find dude, he seems like a cool guy!) He goes by the name “Riceboy”. I’ve been keeping up with his photos for a few months now, and I must say every time at check out his stuff it moves me. Not necessarily the same way each time, but each one seems to have a story behind it. At first I thought, “Well he always has interesting people in his photos,” but then I see other people’s nature shots and its the same thing. In the least its something to work towards. If you have a minute, check out his stuff!

From here on out these are my photos…

The “Ajisai” flower is famous for blooming only during the month of June in Japan. They range from purple, to light blue, to pink even. Really a beautiful flower and you will literally find them all over Japan around this month. The Kanji is really interesting too. It means “Purple, Positive Ion, Flower”, for all you Kanji nerds, 紫陽花(アジサイ)Also known as the Hydrangea in English.
