    I took this photo at a festival held at the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo. Many girls turned into yukata and they enjoyed the festival. More than 30,000 lanterns in this background are decorated. This lantern contains a wish for peace. This festival has been held annually for more than 70 years.

    This is such a beautiful portrait Takashi. I really love the quietness in this moment. I love how "adult" this lone young girl appears, approaching this moment with such respect. I love how you filled the frame with the lights, creating a gorgeous yellow glow. Very well done.
