Shot at Meiji Jingu, a Shinto shrine in Harajuku, Tokyo.
Many worshipers were walking the unpaved approach. Even though it was New Year's Eve, many people visited this shrine. The approach was flanked by the woods and there were sunny spots in spots.
And I found a mother and her little kids walking together in a sunny spot. They were holding hands and silhouetted in the soft sunlight. Their shadows fell down on the ground boldly. Apparently, they seemed to be happy.
