Stand and deliver

Balancing act

A festival wouldn't be complete without children. They participate in all manner of ways, from just showing up in their cute little Yukata summer kimono to scampering around and getting everyone's spirits up to singing and dancing in the processions. These three kids are standing on one of the omikoshi as it inches its way through the crowd. They impress all around with their balance and energy as they chant along with those carrying the shrine, urgint them forward.

On a more technical note, I should apologize for the graininess of these pictures. All I have right now is a point-and-shoot digital camera. Unfortunately, it is quite limited in terms of quality of shots taken in low-light conditions. But I am on the verge of getting my first DSLR (yay!). Hopefully, this should yield much better results.

What I like about this shot is how you included the camera phone!

Those kids sure do well in sharing their excitement and enthusiasm.

The Subster is patiently waiting on the SLR to arrive, once it does, all bets are off and you WILL get me going postal on you if you post a DUFF image.

The ever patient Suby :)
