Animation (GIF) Unwired in the Hills of Okinawa
Late yesterday afternoon, found me up there, shooting a dance in the mountains.
It's been about four years, since the last time I'd been at this ceremony.
Back then, I ended up, going to the celebrations at the conclusion of the events.
After sipping a few of the local spirits, a bunch of us, piled into taxi cabs.
Off, we went, for a night of drinking and singing.
Once all the sacred things are done, those gals like to unwind a bit. Me too.
Knowing, I be shooting a thousand photos or more, I did things differently, this year.
The cameras got packed away and, I sneaked down off the hill.
Then, went to a secret location, to drink, without any of those angels.
Looking back at images taken in 2012, I see several familiar faces from yesterday's shoot.
In the next few weeks, I'll probably be delivering photos to those gals.
If, anybody asks, why I skipped out, last night, I'll have to tell them something.
They're a great group of people, to hangout with and, I don't want to hurt any feelings.
What should I say?
My guardian angel reminded me, I had other stuff to do?
