A small Japanese village, at the foot of Mount Fuji, May 1970

This tiny village was so small, so intimate, it felt as if we were trespassing.
As I glanced through the open doorways I noticed the ground of dirt and 
pebbles running right through to the living area of some of the homes.
My camera was far too invasive to take many pictures, so l only took this and
another of the beautiful windsock carps that flew strong and proud above the rooftops.
Tango no sekku is the celebration of Boys Day in Japan, and each carp 
symbolizes a son in the family, a very large one for the eldest and the rest ranging down in size.

Your style is exactly what I think digital scrapbooking should be-you can tell it is digital and the layers you have used enhance the photos and the story.
