About Japanalia


My name is Gabriela and I live in Japan, near Yokohama.I took up digital photography in 2004. With the advent of the digital cameras almost everybody can shoot something. Though I'm an amateur and no good at technicalities, I enjoy so much taking pictures that it has turned into my all time hobby. It certainly makes me forget about everything unpleasant in the daily life and it gives me great pleasure,also as I can share this hobby with my husband, Yoshiyuki. Photography has made me more aware of nature, its beauty and healing qualities.My husband's..is the real talent, he has a sensitivity to things around him that I was pleasantly surprised to discover!
