I wish I could write this whole message en Francais but my French is terrible after years of neglect.
Anyway, merci bien for your kind comments (especially "audacious," which I take as a great compliment). As for posting more often, I hope to do so in the future, but I have a heavy work schedule at my job and my main creative work is in writing, so I'm afraid photography doesn't get as much attention as it should.
By the way, I noticed your Hotel Nikko image a few days ago and wanted to comment since I loved it, but I was at work and couldn't take the time to write a proper message. Rather than just say "great image" I thought I'd wait until I could give you a more useful comment (which I will try to do soon).
