A Geisha in Gion, Kyoto, Japan
If you visit Gion around dusk, you'll see loads of tourists lurking on street corners with cameras, waiting for Geisha to appear. If any are brave enough to walk down the main street, they're immediately set upon by crowds of 'paparazzi', blocking their path and trying to take photographs.
We took the more subtle approach of walking down a side alley and finding this lady who was kind enough to let us take her picture.
