Sakura Festival - a photo reportage through 85mm

This post is attempt of photo reportage at Sakura festival, a great oportunity to see Japanese traditions in Denmark. The event happened today, in Langelinie park, having the Sakura cherry blossom trees as background. All the images in this post are done with only one lens, Nikon 85mm F1.8 and are not processed (only minor cropping for 2-3 images).
The festival itself was a joy of colour and tribute to Japanese culture. Music, dance, martial arts, kimono show, all executed by a mixture of people, Japanese, Danish and, probaly some other nationalities too. There was food, sake, Japanese beer and many other goodies.
