This photograph is taken in the Seto Ohashi park in Kagawa Prefecture in autumn three years ago. Exactly, the teacher of the kindergarten led students and was coming for extracurricular study to this place. The boys were wearing the white hat and girl were wearing red hat. I was gazing at the situation to the detour. It seemed that the teacher pointed at the finger and was explaining the bridge to them. There were some children who are hearing the teacher's talk, and there were children who is moving about without settling down. Probably, they are students of these suburbs.
Seto Ohashi is a general term for the bridge of 10 which connects Shikoku (Sakaide-shi, Kagawa) to Honshu (Kurashiki-shi, Okayama) ranging over Seto Inland Sea.
Full length is 12,300m and is a structure of 2 stories which Seto Chuo Expressway of four lanes runs to the upper part and along which JR Seto Ohashi Line passes in the lower part. The beginning of mission was carried out nine years and six months after on April 10, 1988 from the groundbreaking in 1978.

This is a pleasant photo with a lively foreground showing the small children and their teacher. Behind is a glimpse of the scenery and the impressive brudge. The light and colours are very good. What surprises me is to see that there is only one teacher to take care of more than 20 kids on an excursion. Maybe there is another one just outside the picture.

it seems so strange to see a completely white bridge like this, in fact, i don't think i've ever seen one before.
I wonder why they chose that color.
and speaking of color, its funny that we see the girls in red and boys in blue.
great to see more architecture from Japan, lets see more again!

Educational outing for sure, children are good subject to capture as shown here and full of enthusiasm. This image creates a feel and effect achieved in wonderful weather in soft color tones and some exquisite works. Nicely framed with pleasant clarity and the teacher has the effect of connecting strongly in the frame, and the light catching the side of the crowd is lovely filling the detail while the background adds interest. A good technique, grab them unaware to make the picture tells a story. These children liven the shot and the make this delightful, Well done, Congrats

A very cute group of children against a lovely backdrop of a gigantic bridge. Huge vs little. A very clever composition of opposites.
