F is for Fox
Fox is a common character in Japanese folklore. Foxes are described as intelligent and possessing magical powers. They can turn invisible and sometimes disguise as humans. They are closely associated with Inari, a shinto kami and serve as it’s messengers.
These images are from my local Fox Shrine, the Oji Inari Shrine. Recently the shrine has become famous as a venue for Oji Fox Parade, an annual event held in Oji at midnight on New Year’s Eve. The parade is inspired by a legend according to which foxes from all over Japan gathered in Oji disguised as humans to pay visit to the shrine.
I took this one for a friend of mine who asked me if I could shoot some pics of her for a school project. She needed a photographer and I needed a model, together we got some great photos. I don't usually take black and whites (though I love to admire them) so this is sort of a first for me. Let me know what you think? 💕✨
Life's a playground, don't trip and eat tanbark though 💩
