Two weeks ago I joined some friends and we went together to the “Asakusa Samba” festival. It is celebrated every year the last Saturday of August. It was interesting to see how Japanese people have adapted a Brazilian tradition. I’m always interested in how Japanese take foreign food, traditions, technology and adapt them to fit their necessities and to what they like.
The weather was really bad, we couldn’t take as many pictures as we wanted but maybe thanks to the rain we were able to take some interesting and unexpected pictures. For example, I took this picture when only one girl was coming towards me and all the other people on the horizon is watching the festival when a big balloon is passing by:
I used Lightroom 2 to make some improvements and changes in these first three pictures. I love Lightroom, what software do you use for your pictures?
