Maybe I'm taking photos to tranquilize my heart.
Both the world around me and the feeling myself are very complecated, so I'm always looking for the things just simply beautiful, clean and fragile.

■■■Do you see the most interesting pictures on Flickr by me!? ---> here■■■

*********************** PLEASE***********************
I'm R-E-A-L-L-Y sorrowful when my photo is stolen by someone and used as his/her own, and then he/her sells it !? Increadible!
I haven't studied art and design at all, therefore, I try to think and take many pictures and choose the best one of them. It's not easy for me, I spend so much time to represent myself.
I think many of the flickr friends who really love photography can understand my feeling.

I have a big heart so if you ask me the permission to use it, maybe I don't refuse it, your asking permission makes me happy.
SO PLEASE ASK ME THE PERMISSION when you want to use my photos. :-)

OK! Let's keep smiling. :D

    "I have seen her works in her blog already and I loved her style of pictures and I just found her flickr page. I am surprised that she has so many beautiful collections already. My favorite is "*simplicity*". I just can't stop looking at all of these pictures. Simple, Clean, and Feminine. I hope one day she can provide some photos for the magazine that I work for (Yogi Times)."

    "Ah, Yoshiko is just wonderful !!
    Love the way she focuses, the way she does every single photo with true feelings and care for it !
    I have always loved her so-called "studio-shots" with the white background and (mostly) fruits as the main parts.

    Very friendly, very bright and clever."

    "If you are like me, a photographer, with little or moderate experience, yoshiko314 is a photstream you will want to go to and to go back to for study and for understaning all kinds of concepts dealing with design, composition, tones, shading, lighting and perspective.

    She teaches by example.

    Follow how she sets up a picture and study them mainly by quiet and thoughtful observation.

    She teaches much and never says a word directly to the student.

    Her photos do all the talking that we need!"

    "My first contact on Flickr :) I like her white background photography. She is lovely food photgrapher and her pics are very apitizing at times, I think i read somewhere she cooks all these beautiful dishes herself.

    You have got a lovely eye for photgraphy and amazing ideas.

    Keep up the good work."

    "Simplicity, tranquility, peacefulness. After staring at a computer monitor for long periods, if I can't get out for a walk in the real world, I instead I feast my eyes on the calming effects of Yoshiko's photos.

    You dont need to be a Hirano Masaaki (Rosanjin Scholar of IronChef - 料理の鉄人) to understand the 'wordless communication' between photo and viewer. This is the power of Yoshiko's vision."
