It is not for a Geisha to want. It is not for a Geisha to feel. A Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings, she entertains you... What ever you want... the rest is shadows, the rest is secret.
- Memoirs of a Geisha

Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + 50mm F1.8. A LOT of noise reduction due to high ISO. Blur is due to indoor lighting and slow shutter speed despite the high ISO. Tone editing. Minor vignetting. Color balancing. Taken at the same time as: [link]

Additional Comments
The movie pissed me off...the parody's much better :D : [link]

Don't read Memoirs of a Geisha. The author did bad... I think is more productive read "Life of a Geisha", the real story of the protagonist.
