Apprentice Geisha Maiko Print 舞妓

Original photograph of a lovely Maiko 舞妓, an apprentice Geisha in Kyoto Japan. Photo © Stevyn Llewellyn 2010.
I took this photo while travelling in Japan in Spring of 2010. I was fortunate enough to get a glimpse of a rare sight, a Maiko ( apprentice Geisha ) in her traditional kimono walking down Hanami Koji Dori street in the famous Geisha district in Kyoto. In the background are large sake casks, which frame her ornate wareshinobou hairstyle, elaborate kanzashi, brightly colored kimono, and beautiful green obi. She is also carrying a small purse. She had just finished a performance at the historic Pontocho Kaburenjo Theatre, where they have seasonal Geisha plays. This would make a unique gift for anyone interested in Japanese culture, Maiko, Geisha, or kimonos.

Abu Simbel Temple

Abu Simbel Photo © Stevyn Llewellyn

This was taken at the Abu Simbel temples in Egypt. Created for Ramses II and his queen Nefertari. This site was the furthest south we went in Egypt. While most images show the exteriors of these temples, the insides are equally amazing, with towering statues within. Everything in Egypt was so grandiose and of epic porportions, it is an endlessly inspiring place.

You can pick up a print of this here.

The Pyramids of Giza

© Stevyn Llewellyn 2010

This is the “classic” shot of the pyramids of Giza I took in 2010. In order to get this angle, you need to walk out a bit into the desert. Words cannot describe the immensity of these.
Coming here was a fulfillment of a lifelong dream for me, and I was fortunate enough to share this moment with my brother whom accompanied me here.
