It is hard for me to be on this side of the camera. It took me about 10 takes to do this (on two days). Eventually, I gave up and just went with this one. I know being a model is hard, and I really get it now.
This Photo of the Week is a simple one, but I really like it. A guy in a traditional store in Gion Kyoto adding more items to display. It’s more in the tourist area than the Geisha area, but it’s still Gion. Many shop keepers in Japan choose to wear these kinds if clothes, so I don’t regard it a costume for the benefit of tourists. This image, and more like it, are available at my agent’s website Asia Photo Connection / Henry Westheim.
