I have the honour of knowing personally some great Japanese amateur photographers and bloggers. These ladies blog in English which is not their native language (I blush to think of the results if I tried blogging in Japanese), and they do a great job, don’t you think?

Let me introduce some of them to you via their most recent blog entries, all on the subject of the changing of the leaves:
