These pictures were taken at the 20th Annual West Valley Japanese-American Citizens League Daruma Festival in San Jose, CA on 16 August 1997. (What's a Daruma?)
|These pages serve two purposes: to show you what the festival was like, and|
to talk about the picture-taking experience. All the photos have been
cropped and reduced in Adobe

See also some thoughts about the software that comes with the camera.
