Social Media

I've moved to Mastodon for social networking. My photos also get syndicated to Instagram, BlueSky, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn - so you can get the latest wherever you hang out, but I don't personally visit these sites often/ever.

You can also add the RSS Feed to your newsreader and get the latest picture updates in your news feed.

Besides my photography on photog.social, I also maintain a Mastodon account on famichiki.jp, where I talk about life in Japan, US & Japanese politics, privacy, web, design, and music.
