Photography is a part of every event. Weddings are probably the best example of this. At the Meiji Jingu Shrine, where weddings are held incessantly, commemorative wedding photos are also taken incessantly. I noticed a commemorative photo being taken in one of the precincts, and since I was neither a relative nor a person of interest, I watched from a distance.
The bride, wearing a white kimono, was sitting on a chair, and the groom, wearing a Montsuki Hakama, was standing beside her. On the other side of the groom, I saw someone holding a reflector. The stage seemed to be set. Not only the professional photographers, but also the relatives and friends were all pointing their lenses at the bride and groom. Even though I was a bit far away, I felt as if I could hear the sound of the shutter clicking and clacking from where I was standing.
