DRESSED FOR THE OCCASION -- Two Girls in Gorgeous Garb and Geta in OLD JAPAN by Okinawa Soba, via Flickr.  The above ca.1915-23 silver print is true "street photography" on a rainy day...on a muddy road... on the way to some festive occasion, or possibly a New Years Party where these young Geisha are called for.    Their faces a tad bit of impatience, only politely stopping to accommodate Enami's request for a photo.
