Man with an amazing home-made hat, Yokohama, Japan

Now, THAT is a hat! – after the parade, Yokohama

I was down in Yokohama for a few hours yesterday, doing a lesson with one of my regular students.

Whilst we were in the little park in ChinaTown, we spotted this guy - whom we'd seen earlier but hadn't got a chance to shoot.

There was a festival and parade; this fella had been on his bicycle in the parade. Very happy and very happy to have his photo taken.

Myself and my student didn't stick around for the fireworks and by the time I'd got home and was in a position to get up on my roof and watch the lightning, I'd missed shooting the best of that.

No matter, you can't do everything in one day and getting a nice shot of this fella was good enough for me.

I did, however, get some nice shots of people battling the torrential rain near my local station. I'll post some of those later.

Gear etc?
