At the midle of November, gils of 7 and 3 yeras and boys of 5 yeras go to the shrine to pray thier well growth. We can see so charming and colorful children at that time. This was taken last year, I will do so this yera too.

Oh, Takero, it's wonderful!!
What a lovely little face. Excellent composition, great colors and I love the way her parasol fills in behind her with the madly nice graphics. What a marvelous contrast with her black clothing, black parasol and the red in her garments. That's fabulous! Many thanks and warmest regards,

i tuoi ritratti sono sempre molto belli, ma i bambini hanno sempre una forza maggiore, se poi vengono presentati con costumi tipici e colori particolari, diventano una vera e propria attrazione.

Hi dear Takero. I was lucky to be in Japan during such an important time in the calendar.I was told that this festival comes from a period in Japan's past when child mortality was high and parents sought heavenly protection and also thanked the gods for their beneficence. Serious little lady and her parents' treasure. regards. Klaudio.

Excellent composition, cute girl with large umbrella.
Excellent detail photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
Wish you a very nice weekend,

The little girl is very cute, beautifully dressed and poses perfectly. Her umbrella creates a fine background that almost hides the persons and building behind her. Sharpness, colours and light are all superb.

This oozes charm Takero. The paper parasol makes such a good backdrop to the child's sweet face and one scarcely notices the OOF background. Good eye contact makes this an intimate and very attractive portrait. Have a fine weekend. Rosemary

This is just simply beautiful. A stunning portrait of this little girl, and that you have composed the shape of the frame around the entire umbrella is just perfect. This would make a wonderful image for an advertisement. Really nicely done, and as always, thanks for sharing.
Best wishes from Ireland

Un joli portrait de cette petite fille aux grand yeux, j'aime sa tenue et son ombrelle si grande pour elle :-)

now this is SO cute!
how could anyone resist taking her photo!!
We certainly do not get to see such umbrella's here in Canada, so this is a nice treat.
I like her quiet smile :)
and the umbrella extends so far outwards it fill up the frame so well.
see you around
