The City of Naha Can be More Fun Than Disneyland to Me
Clouds and rain were predicted, again today.
Wednesday, is the only day of the week, Doc Graff and I go on our camera trips.
So, we chose Naha, the capital of Okinawa, to do some shooting.
A pavilion was built, in honor of the Guinness World Record Tug-O-War rope.
It's a lot easier to take photos when there isn't 250,000 people surrounding it.
When Doc, went in a travel and tourism office, I stayed outside.
They have this big movie screen out on the International Avenue (Kokusai Street) .
Tourists, from around the world, get to see themselves, on the big screen.
They smile, wave and even, get to dance with cartoon characters.
The show ended, before Doc got to see it so, we moved on down the street.
About the time, I got done making an image of this huge Shisa, the rain started.
So, we decided to go into some of the covered market streets.
When these gals gave permission to shoot, I didn't care about the rain.
There's no way, you'll ever catch me standing in the rain at Disneyland.
Everything here was free !
