When the Japanese holiday of Obon came to Hawai’i, it expanded into a whole season. There is a different Obon Dance every weekend all summer here, hosted by temples all over the islands. This photo was taken at the 2013 Bon Dance at the Honpa Hongwanji Hawaii Betsuin temple in Honolulu. While the many dancers encircled around wearing kimonos, happi coats, and street clothes, I tried to capture a sense of their movement by experimenting with different exposure times and camera angles. The variety of different kinds of traditional bon dances (and even a few modern ones) amidst a live musical performance is one of the many highlights of Obon season.
