Right after the team company BBQ party (see flickr post #41), I went straight to Asakusa, Tokyo to witness one of Japan's biggest Fireworks Display (hanabi = fireworks). I still don't own a tripod, which is an essential gear in taking great long exposure shots (not to mention night pics), and so I've decided to take pictures of people instead.

While waiting with friends, I lent Meema my cam as she wanted to try my relatively new lens. She took this picture of the lady whose group was just about one lot away from us (people reserve spaces as early as 7am just to view the firewoks at 7pm). On certain events such as this (fireworks viewing), most Japanese ladies wear the traditional yukata which really looks great on them.
