Geisha graduation …



The ornate fabrics making up the kimonos, obis (waistbands) and kanzashi (hair ornaments) of these maiko on their graduation to become fully fledged geiko (Kyoto equivalent of geisha) – mere outward symbols of an inner grace.

  1. Great interpretation of the theme. Have you thought about tagging your photo challenge post with ‘Weekly photo challenge’? I usually search on that tag in my WordPress reader and scroll though the results – it is much quicker than clicking though all the links on the photo challenge page. It is really interesting to see all the different interpretations of each theme.
