Was it you who made her laugh? That doesn’t seem like the reaction you usually get out of people 🙂
Haha, it was. A real rarity eh? She was funny. More than happy to have her photo taken, despite her supposed reluctance.
What a contrast from the rice cracker store lady! Did you have a funny hat on or something? ;b
Complete opposite eh? A very different experience.
Don’t need a hat. My comedy foreign face is usually enough!
Lovely, if rather red, photograph. Perhaps this engraving was of her when she was a girl.
Her reaction is akin to that those two lovely old ladies in Hikafune had when we came across them on the most excellent photowalk tour you took my wife and I on recently.
Haha, quite possibly!
Thanks. Very kind of you. Yeah, very similar, except this particular lady thankfully didn’t move out of the frame!
She looks so sweet. I like it. That’s a good start to the week! 🙂
She really was. A lovely old woman. And yeah, an expression like that is always a welcome pick me up.
What a beautiful photograph – I love her feigned reluctance….
Cheers! Yeah, feigned reluctance is the perfect description. Always nice when it happens, as the results are generally interesting.

I really love your shots always. And it’s amazing how you get all those people expressions! I am really looking forward to visit your exhibition when you have one here in Tokyo 🙂
Thanks Jordy, that’s really kind of you.
An exhibition would certainly be nice. Maybe I could do one after you’ve led the way by showing your fantastic haikyo photos!
