Along the Road There's a Legend That Was Told
It isn't very often, I walk on the eastern side of this waterway.
When I do, it seems like there's always something new to photograph, besides wildlife.
The water bull pulling an oxcart full of tourists on a sunny day was an interesting shot.
Some brand new signs along the way, seemed to tell an important story.
A Buddhist monk, snakes and some farming near the mangrove forest were on other signs.
So, I took photos of everything that day and got the story translated into English.
My assistant, Mami Sakiyama is going to be a photojournalist someday.
Let me tell you, "That ain't no bull."
The article, Folktale from a River in Okinawa, was her first attempt at something like this.
It was sent to Stripes Okinawa last night and, got published today !
