Harvest Fields, 2

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 18 September 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

I want to apologize to all of you for not taking much time in the last few months to visit your blogs. I confess that lately I have had a hard time keeping Yakumo's World going, even though I now only post from Monday to Friday. Trying to meet the requirements of my job along with the (happy) demands of being a husband and of raising a two year-old have often made me think of quitting the blog. But your kind comments and encouragement keep me going.
So please accept my sincere apologies for not being a better Am3 citizen.

Love those very saturated green colours you create; reminds me of Fujichrome Velvia slide film :-)

I prefer this one !
AM3 ou une autre communauté sera toujours là mais les mois et les années avec un enfant passent vite et il y a parfois d'autres priorités que la photo si l'on ne veut pas, plus tard, regretter n'avoir pas assez profité de ces instants... qui ne reviennent jamais.

These superb pictures come from the same spirit that all the other things you mentioned come from: cherishing good things carefully. Thanks for sharing your eyes and your spirit with us. It all can be, and has been, catching.

What a glorious harvesting scene this is, GJC. You are our 'window' into Kyoto and I love seeing your images and learning about life in Kyoto. Please keep posting, even if you never have time to comment. ♥

Sounds as if you have your priorities correct...however...a few minutes a week for your art will provide them a necessary balance. The words...they are not so important ; ]

Wonderful to see the progress of the field until harvesting time ! Thank you for posting these beautiful pictures. I understand your priorities, don't worry!

Believe me GJC - Although my kids are grown and gone, just the job alone, along with a terribly guilty conscience when i don't spend what I feel is good quality time with my beautiful wife, is enough to pull me away and think very hard about what and where I am. All I can say is that just one or two posts here and there will keep us a whole lopt happier than not having you at all. Your wonderful images providing contributions to spirit, beauty, temperment and balance of mind and soul are just priceless! With love and respect - dj

That time of the year, again, when colours are vivid! This means....the Earth is happy!

Don't neglect your family, but keep posting, even if it means dropping to three times weekly. I love these glimpses into your life.

Wonderful photo. Love the bright greens against the dark greens. The harvester tells the story. Layers and lines. Beautiful.
I have no idea how you manage your job, photograph blog, and family. It is more than I could do. I would be disappointed if you quit the blog, but would certainly put family ahead of the blog. (Maybe post less often?) Do not feel you must visit or comment on my blog.
Above all, don't stress and don't fail to nurture your lovely wife and daughter.

Don't worry, don't quit. Keep posting these beautiful photos as you have time. I truly enjoy them.
