千羽鶴

Posted by Mike Cash (Kiryu, Japan) on 17 July 2010 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

Macro shot of a part of a set of 千羽鶴 (1000 cranes) hanging in front of a Shinto shrine in rural Nagano Prefecture.

By coincidence, I came home this evening and found my daughter stringing up several hundred she was tasked with folding for something at her school.
