For the most part, Japanese women strong and strong willed, they just have an "Eastern" way of showing it. Today I saw some beautiful Japanese women.
Kathy,Your photos of "beautiful Japanese women" are wonderfully framed and lit -- as usual. They are also rather fascinating as subjects of Freudian analysis.You shot these gorgeous dames when their faces were covered, their backs were turned, and their bodies were hidden beneath flowing robes.C'mon, give us single guys -- and Ed and Ricardo, for the love of God -- a fighting chance.Eagerly,Charles
Although the ones dressed like nuns probably got the captain all steamy under his dress whites.The Monsignor
Good to go?Negatory.Call the ball.Send help.
Kathy,Tell me about the clothes the Japanese women are wearing in these photos The kimonos look ceremonial, especially in the shot where the two men and two women are looking over water. Was this a festival or is this daily wear?Joanne
Most Japanese women wear kimono for formal wear rather than a long dress, the women overlooking the water wer eprobably going to a wedding. It seems almost all female Japanese wedding guests wear kimono. Otherwise, you do see women on the street wearing kimon, most work in Kimono shops. Don't forget that every Japanese woman wore a komono in daily life until 1945 so there are elderly Japanese women who still do not dress in western clothes. Most Japanese people are very concerned about exposing their skin to the sun so they wear brimmed hats and gloves, even the bus and taxi drivers wear gloves so their hands won't get sun through the windshield.
Thanks for the info on the kimono. Those in the photos are beautiful. I hadn't realized that prior to 1945, kimonos were standard daily wear. It makes sense when I think about it. I also wasn't aware of the concern about the sun. I assume this is similar to the Victorian standard of beauty - pale skin and all that. When you go to Australia, you will see the same concern about sun exposure but there it's due to the increased skin cancers as a result of the thinned ozone layer.I also appreciated your explanation of the photo program. I was beginning to wonder if you got these photos from some professional stock catalog. Good going!Joanne
Yeah yeah yeah ...Skin is in.
