Visit to the shrine

Visit to the shrine.

Visit to the shrine. Two japanese girls, dressed with colorful kimono, pay a visit to the Hirano Shrine, part of a large complex located in the north-western area of Kyoto. I took this shot after what it seemed an endless waiting: the shrine was packed with tourists dressed in the most disparate ways, resulting in a somewhat uninspiring view. In a stroke of luck, I seized the only moment in which those two girls were alone inside the frame and, what is more, it coincided with some clear up in a rather cloudy day.

Autumn fashion

Autumn fashion: a little girl in a colorful kimono during an “autumn fashion” walk in the Momijidani Park, Miyajima, Hiroshima.

Autumn fashion. The Momijidani park is one of the most famous and appreciated place in Japan to enjoy the beauty of red Momiji leaves. There I had the chance to attend a “fashion show” of a little girl; walking in a wonderful park in autumn is great, so why not catching this occasion to do it with style? So the parents have dressed up their daughter with a colorful kimono, decorated with symbols of long life and luck: needless to say that the little girl instantly became a superstar, attracting lots of tourists and photographers who wanted to capture her “cuteness”, maybe too many, judging from her mixed feelings that you can see in my shot.
