KIMONO, originally uploaded by g2slp.

This photo is stunning, the hair and flower are gorgeous! So inspiring, especially for my work!

I wanted to point out the kimono, and how the fabrics are such a contrast. On one hand there are the flowers, with the black background, quite minimalist. Then there's the busy yet beautiful gold contrast of the Obi. This usually means she is a Maiko, and apprentice Geisha, the red "under kimono" or nagajuban, also tells us she is an apprentice.
