My contact list is getting bigger and I'm straggling to keep up with the ones I've got now. I really appreciate it if you add me, THANK YOU!!!, but please do not think that I don't appreciate if I don't add you back.... My time for Flickring is limited now.

I also would like to ask you to understand that I have to block anybody who does not share anything with the rest of the community and just fave and go. Thanks for the fave though ...

    "Takako is an amazing photographer. Period. Truly a master of bokeh and the blue bear. Her photos always keep me coming back, especially with her wonderful stories that go along with them. I continually look forward to her next photo."

    "I just want to write a few words about my lovely friend, Takako.

    I love the way she brought us into her world through her words and images. They are so full of life, love and care. And I cannot even explain why.

    But there's a rumor that she used some kind of magic spell. Or How the heck can she control the lovely blue bear or danbo?

    I hope one day you will teach me this magic secret :)"

    "It has not passed long time after I see her photograph for the first time. But the speed of her evolution is very fast.
    I am always surprised in the photo that she took. I am impressed. And, I respect her. I respect attitude toward photo of her.
    I envy the sense that she has. I envy her technology. I love her artistry. She has everything I do not have."

    "i'm rubbish at writing these so i rarely ever do, but Takako definitely deserves it so here goes:

    i've followed Takako from way back when she was just started out here in flickr, and watched her star quickly (astronomically?) rise. and though i can't take any credit for her growth here, i feel strangely proud somehow. she's not only a talented photographer who seems to get better day by day, but a truly great person who's always been so warm and generous with her comments and acknowledgement of all the other great photographers around us. i think a lot of us feel this way about her, so it's no wonder she has so many flickr friends and admirers. of course it doesn't hurt that she has talent to burn!

    i'd really love to meet her someday. (please come back to Saitama, Takako!)"

    "Takako is not a only a good phothographer. this word is a "misonoma".. she's more than this. She makes art through her lens, her eyes, her soul. she looks at the world from a personal perspective and she has the power to glean the beauty by everything around here. thanks to Takako we can see the things in a shiny shape! i love her style and she's one of my best flickr friend!"

    "What can I say. Hm...
    I always like to see his comments on my photos, her comments are always interesting.
    I can see from the words that tartan is a very energetic and outgoing girl.

    Always love her works. She loves to play with colours and bokeh, and she can control them well.
    But one thing I really want to see in her photostream is her self-portrait work. Hehe"

    "Finding new uploads from Takako is one of the special moments of every day. I have come to know her as an outgoing person who loves communication and conversation, yet her photos capture distilled moments of silent reflection whose only soundtrack is sunshine, color, and sometimes a light breeze—it is this duality that makes her work and her presence on flickr so engaging. She is a supportive friend with a seemingly unlimited enthusiasm for photography."
