[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A geisha walking the streets of Gion in Kyoto.
The area is the geisha area of the city, where they can be seen generally in the evening, on their way to an appointment. The life they have chosen is very difficult, the first year being the 'Cinderella' year to test their commitment with hard work. It is a life time commitment to their work. They live with other geishas in the Gion area.

A terrific street picture, Janet. Very sharp, with bold colours and contrasts. I really like the way she carries her hands. Her sad face is in tune with my understanding of what geisha life must be like. Very strong picture!
