When in Rome do as the Romans do.
In Japan, I try to do photos like our dear friend Takero. Of course, I have no chances with mz little G9. But I hope zou will like it anzway.
I saw four festivals during my trip. Today I went to Karatsu to see Karatsu Kunchi. There were fourteen platforms, called floats, some meters high and long. The platforms are more than hundred years old. They were pulled through the city and then through the square with sand. Haha, it was fun and great. There were only Japanese there, no Western tourists. I like it.

a very interesting image captured with a fantastic light. A lovely reportage from your trip in Japan. Great sharp, nice colours, excellent vertical frame.

The colours are fine and I like the composition of the two men on top of the lion's (?) head with a fine blue background. I also like the narrow slice of a building to the left, reminding us that this exotic festival is taking place in a modern country.

Hello my dear Malgo
You did witness "karachi-kunchi"! You are so lucky and I envy you, as I not yet take photo there.
That is very famous and one of the best.
Perfect close-up framework and very well matured composition as usual. Clear and very sharp focus in the detail and vivid color presentation. Congratulation on your great job and thanks for sharing, have a good 1 week more in Japan !

I had to stop myself from writing "Hi Takero" here... It is very obvious that Japan offers a lot colourful motives and many interetsing festivals. What does the sign here say?

Świetne i barwne zdjęcie z japońskiej parady. Odpustowa głowa smoka i na nie dwóch dumnych młodzieńców,. Dla kontrastu z tardycja obok ściana nowoczesnego wiezowca. taka jest Japonia, pełna kontrastów.
