Hi, my name is Barron Fujimoto (51 years; he/him) and this blog is where I write about my daily life and snapshots.
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 and play my ukulele.
I am American 🇺🇸 of mixed-race decent: 62.5% Chinese 🇨🇳 | 25% Japanese 🇯🇵 | 6.25% Hawaiian 🏝 | 6.25% English 🏴.
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, fifty-year-old husband, father, Japanophile 🇯🇵, proud cloudspotter ☁, 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.
BTW, many of the product links on my blog have an Amazon.com affiliate code or other affiliate code attached, so I will see a tiny referral kickback if you end up purchasing. Thank you so much for your support!
