Walking around I could feel the culture around me and I was taking pictures like, crazy and well just being myself and of course before I came I had to learn their language(I took a class) so, that I could communicate with them. Then one day on the fifth day of my trip, that's when I ran into M.H.(famous actor in Japan/my inspiration for great photobooks), he was everything I thought he was and more. I was flipping out!
"M.H., are you coming in now?" -agent.
"Ah..yeah." He turns back to see me running away as fast as I could and just laughs a little and goes inside.

It was love at first site." I felt like the whole world had just stopped when I heard those words come out of his mouth. It was happening, my body moved on it's own.
I knew I liked him ever since, I saw one of his works and I started downloading as many pictures of him as possible and to think that I actually kissed him! is hysterical. But is this reality? Does he really like, me? Is my wish finally coming true? Is it worth the risk? What will happen next? These are the things that were going through my head as I picked up my cellphone, but it all ended when I said:
