Koinobori Part II

As often happens, I went of to photograph something and took both a digital and a film camera. The trip to see the Koinobori was no different. I took along my Sigma DP2 and a film medium format in the shapeof my Hasselblad 500CM and some rolles of film. I was not sure of the weather so I took osme rolls of Fuji Velvia 100 and Kodak Ektar 100. On the day the Velvia proved to be the best - as the sun finally came out and created a fabulous effect.

Here are the best of the photos in film. The orginals are over 70 megapixels in size and have been the result of a lot of work with the scanner and Vuescan. I will write more on how I scan things at a later date.

The amazing colours of Fuji Velvia 100. Love this film when it all comes together.

The kites don't look that big here, but each one is around 5 meters in length.

I am sure the colours mean something, but have not been able to find out.

It looks like a warm day - it was only around 10 degrees - the sun can be misleading at times.

This photo is on Kodak Ektar - you can see the size of the kites compared to the men on the left.
