Quiet Moments during the Japanese Fall Festival

With all the excitement of performances, games, and crafts at the Japanese Fall Festival, it sometimes is forgotten that there are many quiet, beautiful, and touching moments during the festival. The Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden is quite large — with many paths, water features, and hidden places — and the festival is three nights and two full days of time that visitors can seek out these places.

Artist Russ RuBert was there to capture some of the moments in photographs, moments of love, friendship, sharing, watching, discovering, and meditating. Click on thumbnail below to see larger images.

One Response to Quiet Moments during the Japanese Fall Festival

  1. Dianne Elizabeth Osis says:

    Thank you, Russ, your “Quiet Moments” are evocative. They make me feel like I am actually in the garden. I think that the flower arranger is especially lovely. Please set this one aside for entry in an SCI competition. It’s a winner!
    I so regret having to miss the JFF, but you brought it to life for me.
