A walk in Meiji Jingu

A walk in Meiji Jingu

I just flew in from America.    I was spending a week visiting my folks and doing some power shopping.   That is probably an under statement to the amount of shopping I did.  I haven't bought casual clothes in a few years and basically purchased a wardrobe.     It's 12:29AM and I feel surprisingly awake after 24 hours on a plane.  I need to go to sleep soon as I have a 8:00AM breakfast appointment. While in the US I made a ton of progress on my digital cleanse project I was talking about the other day.      Here is the latest:

Google Drive:  Now the place where all of 'My Documents' and 'iTunes Media' is stored.   Nothing but temp files live on my Mac now.

My Contacts: All in Google Contacts

My Calendar: Google Calendar

Lightroom: All images keyword

iPhoto: All images moved to Lightroom and keyworded including my iPhone photos.

Bookmarks: Chrome

Blogs: Feedly

Last step is to move my best photos to Piscasa.   It feels so nice to have my digital life sorted and organized...

Today's configuration:  Leica MP3 with various lenses shot on Portra 400 film.

If you read David's blog you realize he is much better at capturing the small details than I am.    He is also helpful at pointing them out...

I am continuing to work on my book for my Kickstarter project.    I completed the layout of the pages and now I am just writing the forward and acknowledgements.    The project funding passed 500% yesterday.  Simply amazing to me.    I have been overwhelmed with the support of people backing my project, emailing me supportive mails, tweeting it, sharing it on Facebook and Google+ or mentioning it in their blogs.    Here are a few notables in the past few days.

The beautiful and talented singer Joy Villa tweeted about my project on Twitter!

The massively popular Gizmodo Japan mentioned my Kickstarter today.  The posting got 75,000 views, 1000 likes and 100 shares.   They later posted a link to ShootTokyo and my hits skyrocketed.  It feels really great to get this visibility...
