I saw and taken this scene in Tsuruoka Hachiman Shrine is a symbol of the ancient city of Kamakura. I do not know what he do was praying (Eavesdropping is rude). However, I do not want to think that there is something misfortune to him. I hope that he gave thanks to a god, because his wish came true. I pray for his happiness.

That's a catching view. The low DOF and the framing with this man in the centre of the picture create a special mood to this pictur. We can feel some emotion seeing this man praying.

A terrific scene and pefectly captured. The man in the middle, so still, seems to have stopped time. Great focus & crop. A wonderful piece of work!
(Nice note, as well.)
