eyes of the tiger by jyoujo eyes of the tiger by jyoujo
you know that song right ?Jensen Ackles dancing in Supernatural ??[link]
i wanna be like him when i grow up.
:D

anyway :

i was walking around a temple early in the morning and when just about when i was leaving,i saw this rope in front of me.Well , i walk through and then ....
there was this guy .... samurai looking like he was going to slash me in half.
it was a ceremony of the new stone bridge in the temple near Asuke city and i was in the middle of it!!!
some guy in suit says to me " come sit here" and i was like ...
with my goofy hat and my usual rip off pants ...
... everyone was suit up and kimonos and so i pick my camera and (what the hell) click ...!!!
then i had to stay in the middle of everyone all beauty and charming while i was looking tired and sleepy and , just me .
that was the day ...
i never felt so stupid before ...
we.ll. maybe once or twice ... :D

I love that man's eyebrows. I have never seen a pair like those before outside of cartoons. :D
Hee hee, that must have been really awkward for you. But you got a nice photo, so everything turned out well in the end, right? :)

haha, that's an awesome story! I think you got lucky...either lucky you got to be a part of the ceremony such as you were, or lucky you didn't get sliced in half!

Great shot, you can really feel the dynamism in this one and you can clearly see it's not posed, but simply showing a fact of daily life. Great photojournalism shot.

That looks like a lovely blade.

Sometimes what seems odd is just how it should be. Apparently fate saw that you should be there for some reason, perhaps to document this moment.

And now I'm off to go teach iaijutsu... :) Thank you for sharing this image!

amazing capture though. i've never seen anything like this before. it's totally fasinating for me. what's the ritual for? like...is it supposed to mean something?
