This Japanese Grandmother Has Completely Won Us Over With Her Wacky Self-Portraits

Earlier this week, Bored Panda shared the story of Kimiko Nishimoto, an 89 year old woman with a penchant for taking some seriously incredible self-portraits. The Japanese grandmother is relatively new to photography (she's been practicing for 17 years) but as you can see, she definitely has a knack for the art. Nishimoto's lively and humorous work is so popular that electronics giant Epson will be exhibiting her work in Tokyo. We won't be able to make it to Japan for the big show, so this collection of quirky "selfies" will have to do.

Funny self-portraits from Japanese grandmother who learned photography, 89 years old, learned in her 70s.

Trump Dumps Fish Food In Koi Pond, Becomes An Instant Meme

Donald Trump is currently on a 12 day trip to Japan, and the first leg has already spawned a number of memes. While visiting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the President took part in a koi feeding ceremony at Akasaka palace in Tokyo. A photo of the feeding went viral, depicting Donald Trump pouring the contents of a traditional fish food box into the pond. Later, more photos were released of the President showing more restraint. 

The first photo was shown to be a sign of disrespect, which FOX claimed was more fake news. Fake news or not, the image has inspired quite a few amusing memes, some even featuring everyone's favorite ingredient sprinkler - Salt Bae.
