My Thursday challenge this week was to use 5 or more photos in a cluster.
For the fourth straight year, Krista, Matt, and I attended the Japanese Festival at the Missouri Botanical Gardens over Labor Day Weekend. By now, we are pros at navigating the Gardens and making sure to attend all of our favorite events, such as Sumo and Taiko. We have seen these two demonstrations each year, yet they never fail to amaze and impress us!! Nathan even had his photo taken with the Sumo wrestlers, although he is much too young to remember.
In addition to Sumo and Taiko, we also watched the “Candyman,” a street performer who created fantasy sculptures of spun sugar while entertaining the crowds with his tricks, conjuration, and lion-dancing. Of course, no visit to the Gardens would be complete without stopping to take a few photographs of the beautiful, colorful waterlilies!
