It was photographing a festival that made me realise, many years ago, it was time to upgrade my camera. I have, since then, the love for capturing festivals but also the knowledge of how hard it is to do it well.
Fasnacht in Basel was the only time we travelled abroad specifically for a festival. I wasn’t that impressed with the whole thing, perhaps because it was hyped so much by our hosts, but it still managed to get a few good shots.
Nikko and Kawagoe were surprise festivals in Japan we only decided to check out while we were already there. They were both good decisions, windows open to the Japanese Culture that otherwise we wouldn’t have known and they couldn’t be more different.
And, despite the weather, Glaswegians like their processions and festivals too. You just need to dress accordingly (or not) and hope for the best!
