This time last year: cleansing frenzy at Asakusa, Tokyo

Going back over some old work at the moment. This was shot last September, up at the main shrine in Asakusa. It was a lovely sunny autumn day, the light streaming through the precincts and backlighting the okiome beautifully. Shooting at a very shallow aperture in bright sunlight has its advantages sometimes; like this time, where I was able to get a nice high shutter-speed to freeze the water nicely.
