Lots of Cranes

Made with 3 exposures, combines in photomatix, cleaned up in photoshop. I snapped this at a festival at Toyokawa Inari, one of the 3 main Inari shrines in Japan.




Thousand Cranes

Origami has become pretty popular all over the world, so I’m sure you all know how to make folding cranes, or have at least seen them before. Have you seen strings of a thousand before, though? It is relatively common in Japan. Called senbazuru (千羽鶴) you are likely to see them in all kinds of places.
