The time has come to celebrate the second anniversary of the daily Japan Photo series. For me, the task of publishing a photo from Japan has become a part of the daily life and I must confess that I really love to do it. I hope the fact that I never missed a day is a testimony to my passion and perseverance: 731 photos published since I launched the series, exactly 2 years ago, with the Asakusa Shrine photo.
But all this would have been nothing without you: your feedback is amazing, your encouragements are priceless and your support is my main source of motivation.
Thank you very much, dear friends!
