Last Thursday afternoon, I crossed off another item off my bucket list; I always wanted to go see Sumo, but for one reason or another I somehow never got around to do it. Now with only few days left here, I was running the risk of never doing it, but then my good friend Aurora intervened and took me to the Sumo, and it was pretty awesome!
Some sort of opening ceremony-ish thing.
Love how the composition of this one turned out to be.
Game is on! Or whatever the equivalent wording of Sumo.
I was so lucky to get this shot, in this exact moment. The motion blur post processing helped, I think.
Another one of ceremonies.
Another ritual. Damn I really needed to have had a guide.
I love the way post processing turned out on this one.
Another interesting sort of angle, I think.
Me trying to be artistic.
The day’s winner. I think.
While in the USA, being stuck in DC an extra day because I missed my flight, I used up that time to visit an aquarium in Baltimore. These lethal beauties, more than anything else, were so mesmerizing and attractive. The gentle ease with which they glide through the water is so serene and spellbinding it’s almost impossible to believe that these are in fact the most venomous creatures in the world!
The end of the year vacation in the United States was pretty great. The best part of it was… catching Looney having a conversation with herself. Scratch that, with two other her-selves. If that make any sense.
