Yajima Maimi's shashinshuu "17" features scenic Guam which serves as a most welcome sight for her 3rd photographic effort~. C-ute's leader has long been one of H!P's most beautiful…..blessed with a natural *radiance* and qualities of overall beauty fitting of a model, Maimichan is also a picture perfect portrait of every thing that goes into the making of a role model for her fellow members…peers and young girls alike.
"17" is photographed is most mature light…….capturing Maimichan as she transcends from adolescence into adulthood, however one may not readily recognize the former as much of this pb is shot in thoughtful poses and atomosphere alike all the while still hinting in playful moments~ intermingled within. Much of her chosen wardrobe features cute youthful dresses, tops….to casual wear and whether much or any are actually part of her personal collection there's a seamless sincerity as nothing is presented out of character or "in character" in the sense of trying to re-create her very aura long known to fans. Elegant….picturesque….to athletic and playful all come to mind giving "17" a well rounded presentation……however perhaps most important, is the well thought out art direction through which Maimichan is brought to life through the camera lense in perfect eloquence.
…Less than six years ago ZYX released two singles..far too little I thought at the time as they were really one of H!P's most adorable and mighty little units ever! =) Maimichan has grown so much in just the past 6 years making her appearance in the screencap above appear so distant….wow~ time has surely flown by~!
And it was always so *cute* how Ume towered above everyone in the group…..most notably at the time..Marippe♥~ whom served as their fearless little leader♥~! ＾ ＾ …..all those years ago. =)
Before the 42 scans from "17" which I've chosen…..here's a little walk down memory lane~….six years ago…..not so long ago?….and yet seemingly so distant as I re-acquaint myself with a most *beloved* group…..
…..the pv for "Iku ZYX! FLY HIGH." ＾ ＾ ………….
