they should be here by jyoujo they should be here by jyoujo
 -  水 子 供 養  ( Mizuko kuyō )

if anyone could actually feel , really feel what this is all about .
people can google and get answer but that doesn't mean that just
because they have the facts, they know (feel) how awful this is .

lately , i doubt anyone feels anything at all but themselves,
but their painful lives .
the most hard workers ,the most busiest .
people are always like this these days .

i am sure they are and only they .
life can be like this for others too but ,
why should anyone care .

well , i do .

not that this can change anything.
or solve the world hunger ,or that i can actually
stop the time of their lives , so many can get some resolved,
conclusion ,or let them breath before another things strikes .

something might change in here ,
i need this change . to make it something ,
not to blame things or just be cursing it around .
to take responsibility over , to take the charge .

to be blamed about .

i can do that .

i think i just found my answer .

and i can might just understand judas part in the bible after all .

not bad for a asian to comprehend .

to whom it may concern

dA , this is nothing but conceptual . i can only hope for some respect .
if you think this is a statue , if this is what you see .
this is not an artistic site at all .

we were supposed to see beyond our eyes and to feel beyond them same .
and to express over . In my culture , this is an expression form .
it might be a statue for some , but it's a lot more .
it's nothing but everything else actually.
with all do respect .

- yoshi .

It's extraordinarily beautiful. You have many pictures of wonderful sites with nature, people, and culture, and they're usually your more traditional sense of beautiful - aesthetically attractive - but this has a whole different feel. It is still aesthetically wonderful, but there's a deeper beauty, I think. There's a spiritualness to this picture that uplifts my soul. I've always been fascinated and infatuated with Asiatic cultures, but that's the case with Japanese culture above all. If I could only choose to visit one country in my whole life, I'd choose Japan without a second thought because most other countries just don't have the depth of culture and both inner and outer beauty that Japan and Japanese culture have, and that says a lot because there are many amazing cultures and lands throughout the world. If it would be sustainable, I think I'd prefer to move to Japan and never leave... Just soak in as much of the essences of Japan as I could throughout the years left in my life.

i guess being on the outside you can clearly
see better how it is the cultural differences .

Perhaps, but it's not always that fun always being on the outside looking in. ^^; I want to delve deep into the culture, and even get lost in it.

Beautiful, powerful photo.

I love that your work isn't just superficial. I love that it has so much depth. I love that you add your personal musings and philosophies in the comments. I love that you always have something to say; I'm not sure I always understand it, but I try to read and listen to it anyway.
I think I know what you're saying. Sometimes I look at other people, and think:

"How can you be so selfish?
How can you lack so much feeling?
Why do you unquestioningly settle for the clean surface of matters?
Why do you concern yourself with such small, inane, inconsequential things,
yet not even glance at the bigger picture?"

More and more, I feel that empathy is a rapidly-diminishing commodity, like a form of lost art; too often it is manufactured and repackaged as mere sentimentality. Do we need to re-learn the simple act of sympathizing? Are we so morally and emotionally stunted that we have all forgotten what it is like to actually, genuinely care?
Anyway. Thank you for making me notice this.

life has a completely other meaning lately.
as we see generations get in and out ,
we might learn one thing or another .
i think we should all do a little of that .
too much selfish ? too much complicated ?
this are about to be overwhelming if you listen
to everyone .
people are getting a little too much of everything ,
it's just get me sick that they don't have the time to
another human being .
and this lack , makes them say the world doesn't care
for them and so everything you probably already
thanks for your comment !
appreciated .

I've always wanted to visit Japan and my friends are all like "what is there to see?" I just want to show them all of your beautiful photography.

it is hard to accept a loss of a person...who has not even been born
when I look at them, your thought is the first one that comes to my mind
''they should be here'' with us...learn from us, know what is suffering and joy...

I believe that everything happens for some reason but
this issue is so painful that it's hard to talk about it or even think...
this is not beautiful
not at all
I see here lots of tears, pain and... irretrievable loss

It's well said here in Brazil:
"A beleza estŠ nos olhos de quem vÍ" (couldn't find a good translation for it)
In a picture, there're times that the concept is the real beauty in it, but it might not be seen by every single person...
Yolenn Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013
This is beautiful. Your culture is incredible.. I've always been fascinated with it for reasons you just said.

Best wishes to you. I hope that today goes well for you, Yoshi. Ganbatte!
