So here goes....
Well the 6th file is named matsurii which means festival in Japanese. The 6th picture would have to be the worst in this file and for a moment I even considered cheating but instead have decided to go through my photos from Japan and feature them each Friday.
Each year there are festivals in just about every town in Japan, this photo was taken at the annual festival in Hitachi City. The photo is titled 'Aomori dance'. Most areas have a unique dance. The dance of Aomori is quite famous and can often be seen in other areas of Japan.

Pochi 7 weeks
We've been talking about getting a puppy for at least 6 years now. At Christmas time we met one week old Pochi and his siblings at my parent's place. We quickly decided that it was time we finally followed through with our little dream of getting a puppy and chose Pochi. My parents kindly delivered him 2 weeks ago when they came to visit us and our life has not been the same since! It's better..much better! I've yet to capture him properly through the lens as he is always on the go and when he's asleep I need a rest as well. He is Border Collie crossed with Sheltie so he is not going to stay small for long. Anyway, I just wanted to share our new friend...
