Taking this photo gave me some idea of what it would be like to be a paparazzi photographer. Something I never ever want to do. In the Gion district in Kyoto at certain times of the day, it is possible to see Maiko (apprentice Geisha) occasionally walking between tea houses. The huge crowd of waiting tourists point them out and chase them down trying to get a photo which can't be very pleasant. This one looks quite scared and I felt pretty guilty about it afterwards.
