This photograph is taken in Yoyogi Park in Tokyo in late autumn of three years ago. I remember that this time was a time of leaving the atmosphere of last autumn which enters in long winter. Although the leaf of the trees of the park had left autumnal tints partly, fallen leaves were piled up deeply in the site. Many kindergarteners led by the teacher were coming inside the park. Children were wearing the uniforms of the blue training wear and white hat. Probably, they will be the children who came by the picnic. Kindergartners gathered fallen leaves piled on the ground by hand, and were running around the ground. This photograph is taken the moment kindergartners are throwing fallen leaves towards their teacher who wore the purple's sweat suit.

Ah, children will be children everywhere. The pleasures of playing with the fallen leafs of autumn is such a joy and you have captured the good spirit of the occasion very well here. There is just enough movement in the falling leaves thrown up by that girl to give the scene a nice dynamic and the expressions on the faces of the children makes one smile as well.
have a great weekend

This is a lovely and charming photo. Children playing always make superb subjects for photos. It is also very well composed with the partly geen trunk of a tree on the side and the red leaves of the overhanging branch at the top. I think the photo is a bit pale and lacks contrasts so I made a workshop. I sincerely hope you will not mind.

Simple pleasures of life are most often the more rewarding - these dear children are having a lot of fun frolicking amongst the crisp leaves.
A lovely image that puts a smile on my face.

A fantastic moment on picture, Mikio.
Happy faces cheering when played with the abundance of fallen leaves. Their unifornms gave a vivid tone to the photo, with autumn red also in contrast to mostly light green colors.
Have a nice week ahead,

Une photo très optimiste avec les enfants dans les jeux avec les feuilles mortes. Ça évoque les souvenirs de ces années d'insouciance d'amusement automnal et enfantin....

Nice shot of the playing kids.Incredibly beautiful shot executed with a superb quality. The DOF, saturation and exposure were managed perfectly. Great work! TFS.

It looks like I am falling further and further behind in your gallery. This is a very cute scene, full of youthful enthusiasm. I love the motion blur with the leaves.
PS. Yes, when I did a google-search on Wright, I came across an article talking about his involvement in the design of Imperial Hotel in Japan. I understand it was later demolished but parts of it have been acquired by a museum.
