hi dear Takero. If it wasn't for those people in the background dressed in modern clothing, one could imagine that Hokusai himself was looking at the water procession. of course the bride would not have been waving at the artist- she would have been more reserved. Beautiful flowers for a nice custom. Regards. Klaudio.

What a unique way to celebrate a wedding, Takero. Lovely sunny view.

Pleasant view, so romantic scene with these people and these lovely garden and flowers, well managed your photo with the good FG and BG, tfs.

Hello Takero, Is this a real wedding couple or just festival? Marvelous view of the boat in the flowers. Wonderful composition.

Kind regrads MAlgo

Bonjour, cher Takero,
Une fois de plus, l'image est excellente. Le sujet est fort bien mis en valeur et donne une idée des traditions qui perdurent.

Hello Takero, very good photo of this interesting scene of the daily life of the brides of June, very well captured in this beautiful image, with good clarity, light, color and quality. A great work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.

Good night and happy start to the week.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Hello Takero,

A wonderful celebration with the boat and the much people in background on the bridge
Your cityscape is wonderful to look at
Also a wonderful panorama view with the river and background.
An excellent composition lovely presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice day,

Dear Takero,

Nice portrayal of this beautiful event.

Best Wishes,

Hello Takero,
What a lovely view of this bride and groom in their traditional boat. I like all the flowers on both sides, and the small, paper lantern at the front of the boat. There are a lot of people lined up in the background. I wonder where they are going...

Hi Takero
so is this something special that the bride and groom are doing, or is this what most newlyweds do in Japan?

You wouldn't see this in Canada, haha. very photogenic, nice to have the flowers all around. and i wonder how long is the boat ride? fine cultural image, it came out well.
