Wet and Wild

Hamaorisai Matsuri, Chigasaki

Went, again, to the Hamaorisai matsuri in Chigasaki. And again got wet, and tried not to fall over in the sea and tried to keep my camera dry, and was again (mostly) successful. And again caught up with an old friend and made some new ones. And again had a blast photographing my favourite Japanese festival.

Though the 2;30am start is, again, telling on my tired typing fingers.

More later

  1. Now this looks like a festival to photograph, Mikoshi being carried in the sea. Looks brilliant.
