PHOTOSHOPPED?


Regarding my July 24 post on rice paddy art, some folks seem to be of the opinion that it's all photoshopped, which is understandable, given the complexity that would be involved in creating the "real thing" on such a scale. So here's one page of the Japanese website showing in time frames how rice paddy art is created. For examples from other years (Heisei 14~18), just click the characters at the page bottom to get to the home page index. Amazing.

And from a naive American perspective: "Why?"

Wow! I am in awe...even moreso seeing their process.
