SUPER YOSAKOI

On August 24th I decided to visit another special festival here in Japan, probably one of the last one for this summer. The Super Yosakoi (https://www.yosakoi-harajuku.com/eng/index.html) 2014 in Harajuku area.

“Yosakoi Festival was born in 1954 while after the war depression by Kouchi chamber of commerce and industry a board of trade for recovery economics and build up local area.For the first time, it was done by 21 participated team and 750 participants, but for the 30th time, it grew up to over 10,000 participant

festival. In 1970 it was chosen one of the top 10 festival in Japan by Osaka international exhibition. Then now after passed about 50 years, Yosakoi enlarge to all over the Japan by who was attracted individuality performance, and many Yosakoi style festival has been born in Japan that the number is now about 220 or more.” [via Yosakoi official site]

It was the first time for this kind of festival that is mainly a dance festival. That day I decided to test my Hasselblad 500 elm (http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Hasselblad_500_EL/M) vita Velvia 100f 220 expired april 2014. The camera is heavy but is a pleasure to look through the finder even if is a little bit difficult to level it at least at the beginning.

The film was scanned by Epson flat scanner gt-8700. The film is in my opinion a little bit too red and I did postproduction trying to make saturation value lower.

Here is the selection I chose. Enjoy it and Stay Click!
