"...there is no more delightful and refined pursuit than the making of pictures by photography.
The aesthetic element in it lightens the burdens of life and sweetens existence here below for those who appreciate it rightly..."

Photography, for me, is about having fun. Enjoying it. While I enjoy taking beautiful photos, I try to keep fun as one of my tools when shooting. If it's not fun, then it's not interesting. And if it's not interesting, then there's not much point in it, is there?

    "I've met Mr 'Toast" now twice whilst on vacation in Tokyo, both times have proved to be a great laugh with the FTPS group. He's a great guy with an easy manner and fast with the camera/lens combo. If your ever in Tokyo, give him a shout via the FTPS group, you won't regret it.

    Cheers mate for the great night out.

    "Fried Toast's stream isn't one I might visit everyday, but when you do stop by, it commands your attention for a good long while.
    I think a lot of Westeners like to onder what life would be like in Japan and FT does an excellent job of capturing all the lovliness, mundane, strange and exciting for us, all in very well executed pictures too, I might add. You might come for the Engrish, but you'll stay for the Kit Kats.
    Trust me."

    "Fried Toast
    is sick as hell! =P
    his pictures are amazing in that if it isent a picture of kit-kats its pretty ahhh inspiring. hes not afraid to go where other photographers would be. hes always coming up with something unique to shoot and theres always the occasional shot of his newest lenses. i wish i had his variety of photography but sadly my photostream is no where near as diverse as his.
    i look to his photography as a source of inspiration for my own.
    KEEP SHOOTING! = )"
