The neck of a maiko

Newer Older

Sometimes if one is lucky then one can meet a maiko or geisha in the small streets of Gion in Kyoto. Like this one who was so kind to wait for a few moments so that people like me could take some pictures of her :)

    A masterpiece! I love your whole photostream: You are very talented, sincerely. Among your magnificent pic, my attention was caught especially by this one : because I love Japan. Great light on the perfect white skin neck of a geisha, explosion of colours all around, original framing, very nice DOF as well. Awesome!

    "I lived in Japan for 4 years and I met a Geisha. I will never forget the experience of such beauty." These words are in my note behind her neck. Aloha from Hawaii, Moanalani :)

    i've seen this before and may have already commented on it, but i saw this again on explore.. and it's just so good!

    to even see a maiko is such a rarity, but the back of her neck, with that paint, is something else.. you've captured a special moment, and your treatment adds to its greatness. thank you for having this here.

    You are invited to
    CLIC ON THE PIC
    and join the group...
