These are photos I took in Osaka while I was there for the big summer festival. It was very hot, so I tried to spend as much time possible indoors to escape the deadly heat.
I went down to Osaka for their big annual summer festival. I brought along my canon SLR with some Fuji Superia 200 film. I normally use that film for my sprocket rocket because of the colourful lines it has on the sprockets, but I must say it did a pretty good job during those sunny days. This was all during a heat wave where the temperature reached 40 plus (Celsius, you American and Belizeans can figure it out yourself).
Below is a short (1:38m) video of some footage I shot of the festival.
When I visted Osaka during the summer I took along my Nishika and some Fuji film. There was enough sun (maybe too much because it was very hot). I threw on the flash and took photos of the famous local festival, the Tenjin Matsuri. I’ve been playing around trying to embed the gifs on gfycat but was unable to do so. So for now these are still fullsize gifs, so be patient when they are loading.
Got my thumb in of the frames, covering one of the 4 lenses of the camera.
I liked the hats these guys were wearing.
This performer was very much into it and smiling all the way in the heat.
These guys were dancing to some traditional music and drumming. The songs were at least ten minutes each and they would make these expressive movements with their hands and fingers.
