I've been so busy all week I've not had time to look at the two big shoots I did last week, Anthony's sports festival mentioned in my fritzing lens post, and the temple ikebana event that I posted about here and here.

The little scene above unfolded as the sun was setting on the latter event, in the garden of the Shoren'in Temple (青蓮院) in eastern Kyoto.

What a great series! Children are children the world over…

Your post appeared in my G+ stream just below a post from Art Wolfe that contained the following quote:

“Accept the children the way we accept trees—with gratitude, because they are a blessing—but do not have expectations or desires. You don’t expect trees to change, you love them as they are.”
― Isabel Allende

Those shots are awesome, especially the first one. I’m sure their parents took, or had taken, a bunch of posed photographs, but I bet yours would blow them all away.

Utterly delightful. I look forward to more photos of kids during Shichi Go San.
