out there in the dark


This is a self-portrait that I took at the Sakamiko Illumination.  I am standing in an enclosed walk-through tube that has walls which project a revolving kaleidoscope of colored light.  I was only able to look directly at the ceiling for a few seconds before the luminance’s intensity forced me to look away.

Yesterday, I visited the Sagamiko Illumination.  In Japan,  light displays are very popular during the winter season.

The Sakamiko display is the largest illumination in the Kanto area.  The theme this year is Great Britain and they  used 5.5 million lights!

The Sagamiko Illumination will run until April 10th.  Catch it if you can!
