Istockphoto Image of the Week

Happy Asian Family

Istockphoto Image of the WeekWhat a great surprise to awake this morning and learn (from my Europoean Facebook friends) that this image from Tokyo is anchoring the Photos section of the iStockphoto web site as the featured Image of the Week. Too cool.

I should confess that since teaming up with istock a few years ago I’ve always wanted one of my photos to be chosen as an Image of the Week, largely because you get an adorable little Imperial crown icon and well, anyone can tell you, I’m all about the bling.

Funny thing is that whenever I dared entertain the possibility that I might be graced with such an honor I always imagined it would be for one of my darker, or kinda creepy images. I would have never thought this airy and light image of Asian wholesomeness would have been selected.

Just goes to show me. Again.

    Thank you Mari, this and every image shot during my time in Tokyo have all found a really special place in my heart.

    Seems like the lypse took place not very long ago. Not sure if you are all in touch with the models but hope they are safe. Very hard times over there right now.

    I am in touch with a few models and photographers, mainly in Tokyo. Interesting their dead/missing figures are more than twice what we’re seeing/reading and shortages of such staples as water, toilet paper, rice are really making daily life a challenge even though the city was hardly touched by the natural disasters. We can only hope for Japan can stir up some added resilience to get through this…
