That’s a volcano.
There are a few reasons why I live in Japan and the Awa Odori is one of them. I can’t imagine not being able to jump in the car and head west every summer. I miss it already. There are plenty of photos of the dancers dancing everywhere so here are a few of them mostly not dancing. And a friend wearing a sheep mask.
Japan’s third, or sometimes fourth biggest city depending on what figures you look at, has always stood in the shadow of Tokyo and Osaka, mostly for good reason.
But that’s what I like about it. In the shadow of its eastern and western neigbours Nagoya has nothing to live up to and that’s what makes it so accessible and easy to live in. Or in my case for the past 11 years, just across the city limits.
I retired my last Holga after the summer trip to Cambodia. It’s a wonderful camera but the light leaks started getting out of control as you can see from the colour shot from Cambodia below.
But I’ve been itching to buy a new one recently and now would be a good time.
