Is that a place where you get your hair cut? Looks like a barber pole to me.
1 for now 1 to drink later.
Congrats to the winners.
That’s the guy that was sitting in the middle of the road eating his ramen, from the other article previously posted.
Bonden Festival, Akita, Japan Photo-Post http://ow.ly/1qeQMT A fun time for the young and old. Really colorful designs, especially w.tigers.
Do I get a special cookie for #35?
Everything is quite colorful if I do say so. I could have made a comment on all the photos, they were that great. 🙂
Have a great weekend. 🙂
well picked. you got it exactly right. 🙂
What is this?
I really enjoyed your photos. I could almost taste the sake and smell the nabe. Your camera does yellow and red so well!
thanks. yes, yellow is one of my favorite colors with this camera. Back with paper prints, I used to always think Kodak was good for red, Fuji for Green, Minolta for blue. I never really saw yellow as a good photo color. With this Nikon camera the yellow is one of the standout clean colors. 🙂
oohhh ! This looks like a lot of fun ! I would definitly be cheering the particpants on;especially if one’s knocked down 🙁
Interesting also seeing some (older) locals armed with camera gear in some of your pictures … i’d imagine that these local Matsuri could potentially be boring and uneventful for a local who’s lived their entire lives there to capture on pictures.
That’s how I feel about my own hometown of Amsterdam; I used to take so many pictures here in the past; but these days if I even wanted to take a single (Good) one i’d have to force myself to it .. but I suppose that’s me ! And that these Japanese people love their Matsuri no matter how many times they’ve seen it 🙂
Speaking of locals capturing locals .. Meiji Jingu is really a good spot for seeing that happen; it’s unbelievable to see just how much high-end camera gears these people carry around 🙂
Another great job.
You are giving bad habits here 😉 Now I want sake!
Colors are something you can spot and snap like a 6th sense.
I love the jackets!!
Great photos as always Alan..love # 15 for some reason!
🙂 great pic on #15. everybody was standing around laughing at these guys who were milking it a bit as well.
The tigers are my favorite.
Looks like a lot of fun! Great photos! I want to attend a Bonden Festival ^_^
