Yellow Fever > well this is traditionnal make up for Maiko (geisha in training), the face is white, shoulder and back too, neck shape is characteristic

if they do not have this white make up, it basicall means they are in casual atire

Jhun > thanks

you can see more image on my website, I have posted images from every year since 2004 so there is quite a lot to see I recommend year 2008 as I started to get good quality that year I think ...

usually I post one image a week, first because it is difficult for me to make good images, second because it forces me to post at least once in a while since I am very lazy

I will finish Bali soon, then [email protected] will start, I have a few good ones to show already

then about Paris you can find very few ones on the site, but it is not a subject I am reall covering, it is already quite a huge task to cover a part of Japan

please note I am semi-pro : I have a day job (very intersting one fortunately) so I only shoot/edit on free time

hum, I start to feel like a madman posting alone

anyway I am done with Bali, nothing so good left, so let s go back to Japan for the 2010 series ! (edit : I showed this image a while ago as an example with my new camera, but it was not public on my site, now I am starting the 2010 and this is the first image, the second is the butterfly kimono on last page ...)

well, you got it all wrong

she is a maiko, that means a future Geiko (Kyoto name for Geisha), so she is between 15 and 21

if you see pictures of older women in maiko atire, they are tourists who dress up like maiko for fun, they are popular with other tourists because it is very easy to take picture of them

but the above image is a real one and therefore probably less than 20 !

The BC Place (home of the Lions football team) of Vancouver had a similar roof for over 20 years and now its under renovation and the old air supported structure will be replaced by a brand new retractable canopy.
