Enjoyed all these photos. This last one makes the shrine look miniaturized. Like something the elves would leave.

I especially like the omikuji. The bright white really stands out against the dark background. That one is so nice in black and white.

Hi Oakland,
"Like something the elves would leave." - that is priceless!!! How come I've never though of it...

Hi Carolyn,
And here I was afraid that just white papers on dark background would be boring! Thank you so much for your comment!

Nice series! I especially like the children's palm prints, and the white of the folded papers against the dark.

Very good shrine black and white shots. I like the one with white material tied onto the line.
