The procession starts 12pm on 1st Jan, so all children cannot participate in the main program too late.
On behalf of that, they disguise and visit at several points to get snacks and candy on day time as same as so called "Halloween" style. That is why several temporary make-up corners are built up, and many boys and girls become cute Foxes.
She has just finished make-up and ready to find snack.
She does not take "peace sign" but pretends to be a Fox by arm gesture.

Hi dear Takero.Beautiful little fox or should I say vixen - looks like she is trying to tell us something. Seet gesture, lovely POV. Excellent colours. Her little polka dotted top fits the colour scheme nicely. Nice to see that even though Japan is a modern country, nature and its creatures are still part of the nation's consciousness Regards. Klaudio.

You have managed to capture the moment perfectly here with the child making that gesture. Great position shooting down and excellent depth too shooting at f2.8. The face is in perfect focus. Great sharpness,excellent colours. Good work. TFS

My goodness Takero...she is the just the cutest little fox I have ever seen...ha. Just adorable here...and you have captured her so wonderfully. She's quite the stylish little fox, too...with her contrasting, small polka dots grey coat, and big, bright polka dots underneath. Very nicely done as usual!

Hello Takero. Small fox with a mask. Very nice. The fingers of both hands make a special sign. A really lovely photo. You have a talent for such photographs. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Apa khabar Pak, Bahasa yang bagus.
A really interesting face and I think this must have caught the spirit of the festival very well.
Impressive composition and the focus is spot on, your pov has revealed the point of interest greatly with good detail, its lovely smily shot. Fine colors and contrast. The shallow dof works well and u have captured the moment beautifully. Great shot, Congrats. TFS. Arigato

deliziosa l'espressione di questa bambina protagonista del tuo scatto.
Grande capacità ancora una volta di sapere cogliere al meglio le espressioni dei tuoi soggetti.

This child is so beautiful. I love the expression on her face, and the gesture she is making with her hands. She seems a bit shy. The make-up and fox mask are colorful and really lovely. Very nice portrait! :-)

Very nice portrait of a little girl with makeup on his face, made the fox. Fox is also a mask. Have fun there with their festivals.

What a nice close up portrait. Good framing with bokeh, good light and the colors are beautiful. Well done

We don't know where is the real face and the mask! She is not used to make a V with her fingers, only II:
Angshu (56760) 2011-01-09 2:42
She's really cute. Funny how she poses for you. Her makeup is beautifully done, her face mask up her head & her gesture is so cute as well. A portrait of the best order as always from you!
Best Regards & Have a good week ahead!

A very good portrait once more! I like your pov, her smiling face looking at your camera and especially her face, painted just like the fox on the mask.
