Great series and you close with a bang. Like the rich, dark tones here contrasted with that ethereal elegance of the maiko.

I like the title you've given this image, it draws attention to a part of the picture that does not immediately jump out - and in doing so it opens up a whole new interpretation of the scene, one full of human tenderness.

And in case it wasn't obvious already, I like the image too lol!
