May 2013


Did you know that onomeister is a hardcore Toronto Blue Jay fan? So, naturally I have a fondness for when I see a photo of a blue jay, because it reminds me of my favourite sports team! This is one of the best shots that I have ever seen of a blue jay, just so you know… Thanks to blightylad1

Do you like beautiful photos? Then you must like Flickr. So many wonderful photos, so little time to see all the best ones. So, onomeister is here to share the best photos! Like this one by NatashaP who took this eye-poppingly beautiful shot of Mount Fuji and cherry blossoms during a sunset on April 17, 2013 in Yamanashi, Japan. Oh, and there seems to be a river of strawberry milk…

Everyone knows about photo blog websites like Flickr. So many amazing photos, and not enough time to sift through hundreds of pages of photos. So, onomeister is here to share the best of the best! Like this one by bbw1150 who took this incredible shot at the Osaka International Airport on May 5, 2013, which is a national holiday in Japan (no, not Cinco de Mayo, but Children’s Day). Also, this holiday falls during Golden Week, the busiest time of the year for the Japanese, as many take their vacations (like Christmas in western countries). Flights, hotels, trains, even restaurants are fully booked around this time of year, and prices are all increased to the highest peak season rates. Tourists, avoid visiting during Golden Week at all costs!
