Japanese pupil, Tokyo Japan

    Newer Older

    I like very much the attitude: this little schoolgirl wanted to do the V sign, that every japanese people does when someone takes a pix, but she was too young to achieve the V sign, and instead of that, made a kind of "i have to think about this problem" sign like The Rodin 's penseur...Sensoji,Tokyo ,Japan

    Photo qui me laisse un amusant souvenir: cette petite fille qui sortait de l'école, voulait poser comme les grands au moment où je l'ai shootée. Elle voulait donc faire le signe V, comme tous les japonais qui posent, mais n'y arrivait pas... Elle se retrouva donc dans cette attitude digne du penseur de Rodin...Sensoji, Tokyo
