5 photos I wish were mine: Maiko (apprentice Geisha)
This week the subject is the Maiko (apprentice Geisha) & Geisha of Japan.
Geisha roughly translated means “performing artist” and their purpose is entertainment – dancing, reciting verse, playing music, or engaging in light conversation. Apprentice geisha are called “maiko” and they can still be seen in the Gion district of Kyoto, Japan. These are the kind of photographs I wish I’d taken on my trip there – instead of the blurry shots I did get because I got so excited when one of the Geisha smiled at me!!
For me it is the people you meet when you travel that make or break the experience where ever you are in the world. This post allows me to share with you some of my favourite photographs from other photographers. There are some supremely talented photographers out there and some amazing faces to capture!
Help raise money for the survivors of the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami via Todd Wassel‘s “Blog for Japan” campaign.
Todd’s idea is simple, if you have a blog, newspaper, or other way of publishing information and are willing to support the Japanese Survivors he would like people to reproduce and promote his article on How to Help Japan’s Earthquake and Tsunami Survivors.
