Kyoto Geisha

     Weeks before I took this picture I had just read "Memoirs of a Geisha" which remains today as one of my all time favorite books. When I decided to visit Kyoto, Japan I was determined to find and photograph a geisha girl. Walking the streets I stumbled across a video shoot. I don't know if a movie or TV show was being filmed but I stopped to watch for a few minutes. That was when I noticed this geisha sitting on a bench. I don't think she was very pleased that I took her picture but this photo has always been my personal favorite from my entire collection.

School Bus

     I have no idea if these kids were going to school or to work. Either way their smiling faces were a joy to see on this dusty road northwest of Cairo. Unexpected sights like this one are why I love to travel.
