Photographer's Note

The opportunity to photograph a geisha is rather restricted to a couple of streets in Gion district. They usually go out to work at around 17h45 up to 18h30, so you have to be ready and alert, as they try to make themselves discreet and move fast to avoid gathering around them.

When they see photographers, most of the time they close their eyes, in order to make sure your photos will be worthless... :-(((

In this case, I was able to catch her with eyes opened, as she was walking in my direction. The fact that I kneeled down to shoot her make her crack a smile, but on the frames I did before and after this one, she was closing her eyes.

That's why I called this photo "Nano", because in some cases, it's the amount of time you have to shoot a geisha... or in this case, a geishy.
