Last Sunday, Carmen and I went to watch FandangObon, at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, in Little Tokyo, in Los Angeles. The following video explains it better than I can, and is from the 2013 festival. This year, an African component was added to the Japanese and Mexican traditions of Obon and Fandango.
No sooner did we arrive when we met Larry. https://www.facebook.com/ABELLERA.fotografia?fref=nf
First, let’s start with a little fan painting.
All of these images were captured with an Olympus OMD EM5. Most were with a 9mm Body Cap Lens, and with the Dramatic Tone filter (Art10) turned on.
