Friday Lens Affair #31

Geisha, Japan

This week I’m hosting a great photograph of geisha by Jessica from Exploring New Shores. Japan is a place where I really want to go one day, that is why this picture have caught my eye! I have mentioned that many times in this series, especially in the Friday Lens Affair # 14 featuring great photography from Okinawa Festival. I’m sure I will love this country. But as much as can, I try to keep my expectations low. Do not want to be disappointed.

Picture Story: Geisha, Japan

This beautiful picture was taken in Kyoto, Japan while I was strolling through the city looking for how to get to Kiyomizu-Temple. Well, what can I say, I got lost in the big city of Kyoto and took the wrong direction. Luckily, it brought me to a secret Geisha spot.

It was a little, narrow street going uphill when I passed a small temple. First, I just saw the temple and admired the site and its decorations. A short time later, a photographer approached me asking me to step aside in the overall most friendly Japanese way.

I then realised that I was “intruding” a Geisha photo shooting. I excused myself for being in the picture and stepped aside.

Wow, I was behind the scenes now and kept watching a team of photographers, stylists and Geishas. It was amazing and such a special moment, I was so glad that I got lost in the end as it brought me to this great location.

It remains a special memory still leaving me in awe. The Geishas were amazing with their outfits, their looks and their attitude!

    It always seems like the best things found while traveling are by accident. I make it a point to “get lost” in most places I go so that it increases the odds of me coming across something special. lol The city of Hanoi, Vietnam (where I’m currently traveling through) is a perfect place to do that. I’m actually sitting in a cafe 4 stories up from the hustle & bustle of city life…a lovely place I would have never discovered had I stayed on the beaten path. ;-) Beautiful photo!

    • Totally agree! Getting lost is quiet essential, and interacting with locals for me! Cool, that you are in Vietnam, I’m jealous! :)
