Accepting my request, he bought a tripod for our camera this 13th. I set the zoom and exposure as I learned from camera maker through phone and he took pictures for me from 14th till tonightThank you so much for your effort♡♡♡   
Also how lucky that we've had fine days!

  22. so,do you think she was sent for punishment or her safety?
    such a beautiful story Miyako..which,if i read the story correctly,your name means moon?
    your photos are marvelous!!!
    oh,enjoyed your post so very much.
    i will share this story with my granddaugher..she will love it!!
    hugs to you from Southern California!!

  23. Dearest Ann,
    Thank you SO much for your sweet comment and reading the story, my friend. I DO hope your precious granddaughter will enjoy the story♡♡♡ Haha, I prefer the reason her coming earth from moon would be for her safety during a celestial war to the other p;)
    Well, as for my name. Tsuki-no-Miyako ("the Capital of the Moon") caused the confusion because of the difference of the languages.
    Tsuki→moon Miyako→Capital So the 2 words got reversed when translated from Japanese to English. My name means Capital city in Japanese. My father once told me that he wished me prosperity of my life.

    Again thank you so much for your lovely comment♬♬♬

    Love and hugs to you from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  25. ah, Miyako, happy birthday. to many moons more!
