Vanessa cardui (Hime-akatateha, ヒメアカタテハ in Japanese)
お誕生日おめでとうございます、メーメーさん。
あなたにとって素敵な一年でありますように、そして、あなたの優しさ、僕を写真の世界へ導いてくれたことへの感謝の気持ちを、
ささやかですが、この写真と、この歌に乗せて。 [link]
いま、何かあった時、自分にできることってなんだろう、っていつも考えます、というあなたの言葉を思い出します。
僕にできること、それは小さなことかもしれないけれど…もし見てもらえたら、気に入ってもらえたら嬉しいです。

The colours are a little too vivid in my opinion, but I like the picture anyway.

Umm, certainly that might be a matter of personal taste but your opinion is right. Thank you :)

No problem!


What I wrote is just a little critique (hope I didn't offend you.) :P

Glad to hear. ^^U I was nervous because I thought you would be mad at me for my comment. (Some people can't handle critique, even though they ask for it.)

どういたしまして!

I never get mad at you :) Yes I know what you mean, even though they say modestly, they're proud of their works.

(I'm not sure if you missed the point or if I did. >_>)


What I was saying is that some people ask for critique, but they don’t want it. They just want credit and attention, and if someone points out the flaws in their pictures*, they get upset or angry and mark the critique as spam. (That's how DArama is born.) :P



*= For example: "Her head should be smaller", "The right arm is way too long" or "The photo looks too darker. You should edit the contrast/brightness using an image editor like Photoshop or GIMP. If you don't know how, here's a tutorial [link]"

Very nice photo, really nice colors, well done. And a very nice name for a butterfly, I didn't know there was a species called "Vanessa". :happybounce:

That song from the link is really beautiful, i love her voice, never heard of that lady minako honda, but she's awesome, thanks for sharing the video.

Vielen dank! :D
...Unfortunately she passed away 7 years ago because of leukemia...
I love this song and decided to devote this photo to that wonderful song.
I especially like a part of the lyrics 'You also have wings, your wings / Ride the wind, get across the rainbow' in Japanese.

So sad. I read about her dead when i researched about her, it's always the brilliant people that die too young. That line is really beautiful, i read the lyrics and I think every part of the lyrics is just beautiful, I'm glad I discovered this singer; I love finding new singers/bands.

I'm glad that you also like this song as well :)
Glad to hear that, I'd like to translate these lyrics into English someday because I think it's a very nice one.
Oh then I'll introduce my favorites again :)

I was bored so I googled to find a translation for you, now you don't need to do it, but i think there are some (or many) mistakes here. :D

Minako Honda - Tsubasa
Music by Oda Michihiko
Lyrics by Iwatani Tokiko
~An attempt of doing a nice translation of this song~

I have got wings. They are shining in the sunlight, and
When i’m flapping with them and chasing my dreams,
I continue a far-off journey.

I have hope. It’s sparkling from the bottom of my heart and in
The colors of daybreak and sunset
It colours my wings while I’m flying.

I was given courage and light by freedom.

You also have got these wings.
Let’s take off into the sky.
It’s beautiful, you feel happy, don’t you?
Let’s ride on the wind and cross a rainbow.

Everybody has got wings. Into the future splendidly,
days are passing by and sorrow is passing by while you are following your path.
The wings teach you the blueness and tenderness of the wide sky.

You also have got these wings,
You are flying. Alone.
Proud and high, with these wings.
Let’s embrace a seven-colour rainbow.

The universe is wide. You are beautiful.
In the clouds, let’s cross over the wings with me.

(2x)
You also have got these wings
Let’s take off into the sky
It’s beautiful, you feel happy, don’t you?
Let’s ride on the wind and cross a rainbow.

Translation: someone on dailymotion translated subtitles for a short version of the song without the second verse, here is it: [link] but i changed some parts and added the second verse, enjoy it, hope it's not too wrong :happybounce:
