Friday Photo: Full Moon's Coming I'm Outta Here !

Whoa!  Talk about Friday's sneaking up on you.  Didn't we just have one a few days ago?

This photo was taken in 2008 at a Full Moon Festival in Kin Village Okinawa, Japan.

You could call it the Harvest Moon Festival, Mid Autumn Celebration or Let's Be Happy There's a Full Moon Out Tonight Party.  It happens about this time every year.

There are a couple of talented, athletic guys stuffed inside that Dancing Lion-dog (Shishimai) and one of these days I should do an article about them.  I have hundreds of photos where I caught them motionless for a 60th of a second and would like to give some to the guys, if I could ever figure out who they were. They deserve some sort of special reckognition.  Imagine stuffing yourself and someone else into a bearskin rug, zipping it up and going out dancing on a hot summer day.  Hah ! 

Looking at some of the local online sources for this weekend's events in Okinawa, Japan it looks like I'll be on the road, somewhere, all the way through Monday night.

I'm charging and cleaning the cameras.

Besides the Full Moon Festival in my hometown, there's a Tug-O-War

Shuri Castle Park Mid-Autumn Celebration

Beer Festivals and a head examination, I been meaning to get around to, so

                         I'M OUTA HERE !
