Twice a year, the association PPK (Photo Partner Kyoto) organizes a public photo shoot in a temple or a garden with Geiko and Maiko. These are rare opportunities and are very popular.  Indeed, they manage to pack and organize a couple of hundreds excited photographers around five models and a bunch of assistants and other staff.

Well, this last November, all three sessions took place under continuous rain. Sure, it was a challenge, but still, it was fun and I’ve enjoyed the day very much.  

Here are a few of the photos I took and presented to the PPK Photo Contest. .  . and I was very pleased to find out that the first of these photos received a “Special Selection” prize!
