Kitsune (keetsoonay), my blognamessake, means 'fox' in Japanese. I've always felt drawn to these creatures for their mixture of elegance and mischievousness, and the way their beautiful coloring boldly stands out against their surroundings. I found this mask on ebay, and while it wasn't necessarily a fox, I picked it up in hopes of channeling one for some fun photos.
The light as the sun came up this morning was spectacularly vibrant, and it was definitely worth getting up at the crack of dawn and suffering frozen fingers and toes for the mood and colour the camera was able to capture. I wish I could really convey what it looked like and felt like to be there at that moment, as I'm sure you can imagine how much more bright, golden, glowy, and soft the whole scene was in real life. It's one of those painfully, permanently ineffable things though. The images are what I can share.
