Wow! These BGs are totally wonderful!
May I use it for practicing photo manipulation, and then share it again for everyone?
Thank you so much for sharing :D

Yes, you may do anything you want with them, as long as there is absolutely no transaction of money involved.

I wonder how many students have sex on a daily basis in that university you went to.

So I was flipping around the .zip file and looking for pics for my VN...

Hmm...
T_T Is...a beach possible?

And possibly a cemetery? :D For this, I totally understand if there are restrictions on that, and I think people are going to give me weird stares in their minds (just what is she planning...), but it'd be nice.

Beaches are possible, but not right now, because it suddenly got freezing cold again and it's been raining all week. -_-;

There will probably be pictures of the sea by next week, even though it won't be a nice, sunny beach with everyone in swimming suits.

I can try grabbing a photo of a cemetery, but it'll probably have to be from the outside. I don't want to have to explain why the hell I'm taking a photograph of someone's grave to a security guard... XD (Maybe I can get away with it by telling him that my friends dared me in a test of courage? ._.; )

Again, thanks for the reference photos Samu kun!

By the way, have you succeed breaking into the girls rotenburo? XD

Too bad it's freezing again, I guess we'll have to wait for the summer then.
You'd be writing "Natsu da! Umi da!" on the sand shore :)
Please don't forget the tidal wave breakers photos. :roll:

ah! these are wonderful!

ah, too bad you weren't able to get some photos of when it was snowing D: (the kinetic novel i'm making is set during winter).

But thanks for your efforts! Would it be okay if i edit them to seem like it was snowing?
See ya.

Oh right, almost forgot. =w= I'll see if I can find some tomorrow.

Yeah, it's only snowed once here since late January, and it pretty much melted the instant it touched the ground. There's not much snow in Osaka.

Yes, that's okay.

Thanks a lot for these! They look great.
I was also looking for a typical room setting image if possible. :D
Like with a bed and that sort of image.
Also a kitchen would be awfully nice too!
And a bathroom!

Sorry for all the requests, thanks again for the images, awesome job!

I don't think photographs of inside houses are physically possible because everything here is so tiny that it is impossible to take a shot with an angle wide enough to see much. Why don't you just use photos of your own house? XD

Please don't forget the tidal wave breakers photos.

I went to the sea this weekend, but alas, there was no sign of the tidal wave breakers.

Actually, this is a pretty common problem - it's more of an issue with the camera than with the house, even the insides of reasonably-sized rooms seem smaller when photographed, most of the time.

If you want to take good photos of the inside of rooms, you need a wide-angle lens, which generally means you're already a professional photographer, or at least a rich and/or high-end amateur. See if you have any estate-agent friends and ask if they can borrow the camera they use at work. ;-)

(Another approach is to step back out of the room such that the doorframe is only just out of shot, and take the photo through the doorway... which isn't as good as a wide-angle lens, but is usually better - if there's a convenient doorway to use - than a photo taken from inside the room.)
