    Dear Norbert,

    Hello, I just came across your website through Facebook. Look at your photos, I love it! What I like about your photos. It includes beautiful Kyoto buildings, assets, local people as well as tourists. It captured natural Kyoto scenery. I wish you would take beautiful pictures of Kobe someday 🙂

      Hi Sae, thank you very much for your visit, and for your kind words. I am glad you enjoyed this gallery, and I do hope that in future I will have a chance to also see more of Kobe – and if any good photos should come from that, I’ll let you know 🙂
      Best wishes

    Love your photos Norbert! Can’t believe I hadn’t heard of your work prior to the app that came out with fotopedia. I have a deep interest in Japan – I lived there last year and my family and I are returning in the spring. Your photography has really inspired me to branch out in some of the kinds photography I do when we go back. Thanks for that! And thanks for sharing your vision from behind the lens!

      Hi Les –
      thanks a lot for your nice message! I am glad that you got a chance to download the Fotopedia app, and that you enjoyed my photography from Japan. Your own photos show a keen eye for capturing some of the distinctive shapes, colors and details of Japan (and I notice that you have enjoyed visiting many of the same places that I also got to see 😀 ). Enjoy your return there next spring, and happy shooting!
      Best wishes –

    Thank you so much for sharing all of this. Don’t know where I got the first show from, but love your site.

    You do a wonderful job of capturing the architecture so beautifully designed with nature.

    Would love to go to Japan, China and Asia.

    Thanks again,

    Anna Waldman

      Hi Anna –
      I am glad that you found and enjoyed my photos, and I thank you for taking the time to leave this nice comment. I hope that one day you will be able to travel to Japan, and if my photos have done even the smallest part in inspiring you in this regard, I am really happy.
      Thanks, and best wishes –
