This photograph is taken to the Fukagawa Hachiman festival in this summer. The girl who has participated in this festival had poured water on the mikoshi which passes along a place along the route from on a stand. If it guesses from the Kanji character written to Happi, she will be a girl of the town association near this. From the frame, she was shedding sweat by signs that used up energy to the festival and she was absentminded to it. The masks of the roadside stand stood in a row in the place along the route in back.

Very sharp, clear and finely detailed photo. Beautiful capture, with perfect timing, catching drops of water, coming from both girls and the man behind them. Light management is flawless, and the colors are so natural, it's as if I'm the one taking taking the photo. BRAVO on your POV and your ability to present perfectly your Mind's Eye, great job Mikio!!
TFS.........Your Friend from California.......Buddy
