Yay, I'm in this time.

Now off to deal with that sheetrock...

I can barely afford my own prints but that is a stunningly beautiful photograph, worth every penny and then some.

Would just love to own a copy: just can't afford it!

I had a feeling that it would work well printed large. (It's a pity I can't afford it!)

I have been perusing Ken Tanaka's web site. I have been amazed at the visceral reaction I have to so many of the photos. For example, this one of waves crashing on the Lakefront.


I have seen pictures of waves and rapids and waterfalls - they are all nice, but they never "grab" me. I am a Chicagoan who has been in exile for 15 years. I see this picture and I am back there riding my bike or sunbathing and about to get a freezing bath. I don't know if it is possible for a photo to "put you there" - but Ken's photos certainly "put me BACK there."

Oh, good; just looking at the web image I was thinking that the nicely affordable size wasn't doing this image full justice.

Of course my basic cheapness / economic situation is resisting actually doing anything about this pretty strenuously.

I am honored by my my fellow TOP-er's interest, and investment, in "Summer Storm, Chicago". I must confess that I was initially rather skeptical when Mike proposed to offer it as a TOP print sale. But your remarkably enthusiastic response quickly dissolved my doubts.

I am delighted that so many people, from so many places, enjoy "Summer Storm, Chicago". To those who invested in a print, I hope it gives you enjoyment each time you look at it for many years to come.

Dear Ken,

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Gotta tell you, as one who now has some experience at doing this, this one was such a no-brainer. I miscalled how fast the first run would sell out by only 90 minutes. I had a (non)bet going that the second run would be gone before Mike woke up Monday morning. I was over 12 hours off on that. But, was there any question it would sell out? Not in my mind, not in the least.

Dammit, forgot to check back on it Saturday. Oh, well, it was somewhat beyond my hobby budget for this month, and it's 5 1/2 months till my birthday, so I couldn't really justify it as a present to myself. But I'll definitely take a closer look at Ken's website, now.

Dear Ken,

My print arrived today. Everything I'd hoped for. It's gorgeous.

Only sorry I couldn't afford the bigger one this month.
