Photographer's Note

The Geisha Life for this lady is simple and short (as I guess):
She walked into a geisha costume house. She paid for the service fee (Or someone paid for her). The service person in the costume house cleaned up for her; dressed her up; took a bunch of photos for her. As part of the service with an extra fee, she took a ride of the human force carriage along the street. Wes happened to be there and Wes took a couple of pictures for her to show her off in the internet.

I saw the geisha costume house and their listing prices for their service when we were wondering the street. So, I think the above "memoir" is very close to the reality.

This Geisha knew that I was taking her picture. She tried to hold her smile like a professional geisha.

For sure, this geisha looked a professional to me as in the past, my impression of geishas were "Beautiful" "Japanese" "Ladies" and Another Geisha. (lol :)

In the WS, I have posted a zoomed out picture of the same scene.

I did a de-saturation to the environment to minimize the distractions. An un-processed version is posted in the WS for comparison.

Have a nice weekend.
