The Appropriately-Named Fallen Leaf Shrine
Iwato Ochiba Jinja (岩戸落葉神社), Kyoto Japan

Here's a wigglegram (which I hereby dub in Japanese as「クネクネ写真」) from an outing a few days ago to the “Fallen Leaf Shrine” (岩戸落葉神社) in the mountains north of Kyoto.

That's at the same place as my first try at the whole “stereo photo” thing earlier this month, a vist first seen in “A Slightly Early Visit to Kyoto's Fallen-Leaf Shrine”.

This subsequent visit is after an additional 11 days of leaf fall. Despite how beautiful they are, it's rare for a temple or shrine to let fallen leaves accumulate; they clean them every day or multiple times per day. But this place is different, and so by the mere act of not bothering to immediately tidy up, a small, remote shrine is transformed from “obscure” to “popular”.

I intend to post more photos from this visit another day, but until then, you can get a general sense of the small shrine via “Carpet of Yellow at the Iwato Ochiba Shrine” from two years ago.

Also different from 11 days prior is that I now have a bit of experience with wigglegrams, as the “Wigglegram” category on my blog shows, so this should be nicer than that first attempt. (The most recent wigglegrams prior to this are of lovely ladies in kimono, here and here, but this time we get only Damien Douxchamps).

I’m not quite sure why, but unlike your other Wigglegrams, this one instantly gave me the sensation of playing one of those first person shooter video games. Maybe it’s the intense colors, or the photographers stance – I don’t know. But when I moved the mouse, I was momentarily transported back about 15 years to the last time I played one. I felt as if somehow, an alien was going to jump out from behind a pylon, and I should really lob a grenade into the shrine, just to be safe 🙂

I can the point raised above: See a connection to the so-called hunting games

A lady in kimono would be more appropriate indeed. BTW, have you seen the _guy_ in a kimono in Daiho-in? Kimono as in lady kimono of course. That was weird… Not sure I’d try that even for your wigglegrams 🙂
