This photograph is taken at the athletic meet at the elementary school near my house. As for the typical game held at an athletic meet, there are held footrace, relay, an obstacle race, a three-legged race, tug of war, throwing balls into baskets, a mock cavalry battle, etc. This photograph is taken from a woman's mock cavalry battle. As for a mock cavalry battle, four persons will be 1 set. Three persons are made a rider for one person with the role of horseriding. The horseriding is wearing a hat or a headband and when it is taken by the partner, victory or defeat attach it. It is supposed that it is the purpose of a school athletic meet on the point of supporting cooperation, harmony, a sense of solidarity, union power, etc. It is carried out to a year once or twice in many cases, and the first main has much holding of autumn (9,10) and then spring (5 and beginning of June). It is said in the process in which Japan forms a modern nation that the athletic meet played the large role. While reorganization of the traditional community by maintenance of a local autonomy system or progress of industrialization progresses, it is mentioned to one having contributed to integration of the community. Solidarity of the community centering on a school was reconfirmed by participating in an athletic meet positively not only including an enrolled student but including the adults of the area and the adults who moreover have not sent the child to school, and it became possible to strengthen. In order that Arinori Mori, the first Minister of Education, may recommend the group training of gymnastics, it came to hold an athletic meet in school at Meiji period.

Two more exquisite photos. I like the main entry for its sharpness and selective focus.
I like the WS for the predominance of the color red.
