What I see

Greek Parade

I photographed Greek parade last Sunday although I didn’t even know what they were celebrating. The parade started from right in front of Apple store on Boylston street and went down to Boston Common, where they danced after the parade. It was a quite long event but fun to look at:) Ummm…I shold’ve taken some video as well. For some reason, as I was photographing it, I was remembering Japanese traditional festival called SANJA-MATURI which is one of the biggest  and most famous Festival in Tokyo. Some of my friends live in SITA-MATI (Downtown in east Tokyo) get extraordinaly excited at that time even young girls. It’s much rougher than Greek Parade though.

先週の日曜日、ボストンで行われたギリシャのパレード??を撮影してきた。ボイルストンストリートのアップルストアーからボストンコモンまでずーーっと続き、パレードの後はギリシャの伝統的なダンスも見ることができた。パレードを撮影しているときに何故か、日本の三社祭を思い出した。浅草周辺出身の友達がけっこういるのだが、彼らは祭りの時期になると、かなりの気合いの入れようで、下町っ子は祭りのために生きているんだ!と女の子の友達が言っていたっけ。この穏やかなギリシャのパレードとはだいぶ違って荒々しいけど、なぜだかそんな事を撮影しながら思い出した。
