Hatsudairen in Three Colors
So, how do you like my new ambition to start posting twice a day? Tokyobling will soon celebrate it’s third birthday and I felt it was time to do a little bit more, so at least for awhile, I will try out posting more often than before. As before, one post will be a serious one, possible longer, while the other post of the day will be a little bit more playful, and have the sort of content that I usually wouldn’t devote a full post on. Forgive me for being a little playful.
This post a one of the more playful one. This is a member of one of my more local Awaodori teams, based in Hatsudai (Hatsudairen – 初台連), in the northern part of Shibuya ward in central Tokyo. I took this photo at the annual Hatsudai Awaodori Festival in September. It’s held in the team’s home ground and is one of the most interesting Awaodori festivals in Japan. For this photo I played around with the post processing, one original colors, one sepia toned and one black and white. I have a hard time to select my favorite, so I’ll post all three of them and let you decide which one is best! Enjoy!
