Hiroshima FF 09, Rainy Day

Day 3, the last day of the festival, it was raining. The origamis were still lit and floating on the Motoyasu River in front of the A-Bomb Dome at the Peace Memorial Park.

The park is located next to Hondori shopping center, so many of the visitors went there to buy umbrella. 

These candles were decorated using water proof colored pens, however the paper used was not strong enough, as such they were collected earlier due to rain. I was lucky to snap some shots before night.
It was me who arranged them in a row the day before, and they were still in their position when I came again the next day :). The candle in the middle shows a character call Anpanman, a very popular cartoon character among children in Japan. 

They have done their job, time to rest.

Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time ago...

Yuri San: Ame ga suki desu (I love rain)
Hiro San: Honto? (Really?)

Your posts are wonderful.

I left a response to your question about latillas on Julie's Scottsdale (Arizona) Daily Photo site. It is an obscure word, even in English, because it comes from Spanish, and it is used primarily in the desert Southwest of the USA (Arizona and New Mexico, and parts of neighboring states)>
