    “Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”

    Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2

    I just asked my camera what to call it and it said:
    "clunck"
    "Have fun and catch that light beam!"

    I pretty much pronounce all Japanese names and words as most Americans do. Not only does it prevent me from needing to explain/repeat every time, it's actually easier to say it in middle of English sentences. I am not a linguist so I cannot explain why but it's true.

    Strangely enough, I also pronounce my own name differently. Again, it's easier for me to say it and easier for people to hear it.
    Thank you for that! I find this sort of thing incredibly interesting.
