On the move

I have been really busy lately. For the most part, it is because of work. Unfortunately, I haven’t found time to get back to my “normal” routine (which includes training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and going to the gym). However, I don’t lose heart. And not only I am going to be on the mat and on the gym floor really soon again, I am already planning further.

Hajimemashite. Aoi desu. Douzo yoroshiku.

On my first post of 2012, I already mentioned that I wanted to do some new things. The kick-off was my entrance to a photo contest (and if you haven’t voted yet, remember that you have until February 5th to do so). I also mapped this blog on a personalized domain ( and had a haircut.


Today, I came across an old blog entry I posted back in 2007 that reflects a lot of my spirit now. It reinforced the fact that I am not having just an impulse of excitement, that is who I am.

Yukino's new outfit

I hope to have some more news for everybody soon. And in the meantime, I continue doing my best to improve my photography skills.

Aoi & Yukino

Thanks for stopping by.

Playing with filters

In order to bring some fresh air to my pictures of Yukino-chan, I decided to play a little with Lightroom’s filters. It also added some mystery to the her new look, so it was double fun.

Yukino reading

Recently, I ordered an outfit from Nine9Style for her. It looks really nice, including the boots. So far, I have not had the best luck with the shoes I got for Yukino. This pair made me really happy.

So that is what she is reading

Together with the outfit, they sent a small magazine with some of their outfits. It looks really nice and I could not leave it without a photo shoot.

Yukino's new wig

The wig looks so sweet on her. Pink is one of my favorite colors and it is exciting to see how nice Yukino looks in it. (^_^*)


Thanks for reading!

Post processing drama

After I felt I was getting somewhere with my pictures, I decided to venture into the worlds of post processing. I knew it was not going to be easy, but why not?

Yukino at the park

It felt like a natural continuation and a good thing to have both skills moving forward together instead of waiting for some miracle to happen.

Yukino at the park

Well, I knew it was going to be difficult, but I was not expecting it to be THAT hard.

New leg warmers

I am not blaming the software. I am pretty sure that a lot can be done with Corel Paint Shop Pro X2, but for obvious reasons, one needs to know how to get the best out it. In my case right now, I don’t.

Another hair clip

In the meantime, I keep on shooting, trying, sometimes getting good results, failing miserably others… And I hope you can bare with me in this long learning process.


Thanks for stopping by. And if you think of anything that might helps us out, let Yukino and I know it, please.
