Shaking Bonten


Photographed at Bonten festival. Old dude shaking a 17-meter gigantic bamboo mop with red-and-white pompom like there is no tomorrow.

One more photo of this festival was posted here. If you are curious about this festival, please visit our other blog.


This is a Ruby Tuesday and Moody Monday entries. The theme is "traditional".

  6. A giant ruby mop arouses our curiosity. Is the air bring 'dusted'? The street? The viewers? Who or whatever, it is a visual delight watching the parade participants hard at their fun work day...
