A traditional wedding that we came over in the historic district/one of the temple complexes in Nara. It did not look cheerful but all very serious (okay the bride seems to smile). I can't say if the ceremony had already taken place or if they were about to go somewhere else.
Someone was making images. I used the chance to shoot some photos. The man to the right has some rouge on his cheeks. I found this, well, kind of interesting. All very very different. Later we saw other wedding couples similarly grim looking escorted by a shinto priest and a "temple lady", see here ... temple lady ....
In the ... CI ... another image of this fascinating area, a temple taken in the same town but not the same place as the main. Nara is not very far from Kyoto easily reachable by the excellent train system. Okay the writing, not always easy to "understand" - haha. But we always landed in the right places more or less.
Guten Morgen Barbara,
The bride is trying her best to be serious but she can't hide her joy. Her hat looks a bit like a nun's wimple. That little smile makes the image perfect for, 'Love is' I like the temple's great detail against the white sky
You seem to be one of the few persons still alive here, the cold has frozen them maybe....
The wedding is a serious decision, we can check every face, they are convinced! It's the first tilme I see a japanese wedding and I would have been happy to be at your place, it's quite different from the Westren ones. But they are in love, for sure!
BabaCam (2019/02/06 14:20:58): Haha "still alive". On the weekend it was nearly dead and PF came to a halt. It is such a tiny community that everybody that is not active makes it worse. Right now Elaine is on a long holiday, JMarc burried under work etc. etc. We need more users. Nobody from TE that we can motivate?
Without the small smile of the bride this in our eyes actually looks like a funeral party. So many "petrified faces". You have been at the right place to the right time - a stroke of luck for each photographer. In combination with the CI an all around worth reading and worth seeing contribution to our theme of February!
Grüße aus Westfalen, wo ein Hauch von Frühling in der Luft liegt!
