Patrick’s first experience at a local photo contest — Maiko and Momiji (apprentice geisha and maple leaves colors) organized by the Photo Partner Kyoto Association, ended up today with the award ceremony. Patrick’s very pleased and very proud to have one of his photos receiving a “Special Mention”.
The photo shoot took place in November at the Chishaku In Temple. There were over 500 photographers taking photos of five Maiko and Geiko. Thanks to an excellent organization, the large number of participants proved to not be a problem.
“It was something new to me and it has been quite fun and a good learning experience. I look forward to the next similar photo session that will take place toward the end of March, and the related photo contest.
