kyūdō (again)

6 December, 2014

Some really nice clean work from Ms. Stiller (yepyep) over on Flickr, who is a kyūdō practitioner herself. I like the way she has tightened up the framing to really catch the calm before the draw; the potential. The classic image of an archer – for millennia – is at full draw with the bow taut, the person and the weapon poised at the critical moment. Sometimes it’s good to see something else.
