I like the pictures you chose for the birds. It's interesting that there is no "l" in the Japanese language.

Pat Hatt said...

So the flamingos have fur in japanese, that is interesting haha

Linda said...

I love these bird posts, Adam. The photos are great, too.

Or in "Team."
Yeah, I know. That doesn't make much sense.
Sorry.

And, apparently, no neck muscles.

Love the Japanese art :)

These are pretty neat. I must have missed something (I'm sure I did). Did you live in Japan or did you study Japanese? Or do you have a Japanese heritage? I know you like anime (as opposed to the farmer's daughter, Anna Mae).

Niceee, <3

Adam said...

actually there is an I. There's Watashi, Boku, and Ore. You probably got it confused with the fact there is no literal equivalent of "a" "an" or "the".

Adam said...

Or like Ryu Haybusa from Ninja Gaiden

Adam said...

never played any ironically

Adam said...

Never been to Japan yet, and I don't have any heritage. Just been fascinated by the country since I was young, so learning the language has been my hobby.

Groetjes Tinie

Adam said...

Yes 2 and 5 are very old paintings/drawings.
