About this blog (and me)
Hi, my name is Barron Fujimoto. I write about my daily life and snapshots. I try to find the positivity in everyday things. That’s been my focus the past few years, although I have been an optimist my entire life. You know, we only have a blink of an eye’s worth of time in this universe so we might as well try to be as happy as possible. 😃 And positivity feeds positivity.
My favorite hobby is photography. I try to post a photo with each blog post and then write a few lines about that image. I hope that you might find some tips here that help with your own photography. 📸 Feel free to ask about any photo you see on my site! I also like to draw and sketch. I’ve just recently picked it up after a very long break (I graduated with a degree in Studio Art in 1990).
The name “10nineteen” comes from my birthday, October 19th. For some reason, I often glance at the clock exactly at 10:19, or spot it in unexpected places, like the airport in Orlando.
I am a neutral-good, forty-something-year-old husband, father, Japanophile 🇯🇵, and amateur photographer 📷. I like to ride my motorcycle 🏍, eat spicy foods 🌶, dabble in new hobbies, and just try to enjoy being alive wherever I am. I was born and raised in Southern California, lived in Japan for three years, and now live in Texas. I love the Internet and you can find me on lots of different sites listed on my Elsewhere page. I’ve been blogging since July 2000, both here and before at Takoyaki.org.
