In November, every year, we have a holiday (though not a "national holiday") where we celebrate younger children. All over Japan, 3- and 7-year-old little girls and 5-year-old little boys go to shrines with their families and pray for good health and all-around good luck for them as they grow up. Some wear traditional Japanese kimono or party dresses and suits. Most families will document this event by having a special picture taken....we spent the "big yen" and went to a professional photographer.
Here are three of the pictures we chose...believe me...choosing these was a very difficult process...they must have taken over 50 shots and they were all just great.
I have put all 5 shots into my Albums at the Kodak site....www.kodakgallery.com
Not sure if I remember how you get in....if you go to that site, put in my e-mail address, maybe you can get in....if you are a member, then it should be easy. If you have any problems, just let me know and I'll go ahead and post all of them here!!
When I look at these photos, I just reminds me that he really isn't a "baby" anymore..
