Title: "Hippy Girl"
Category: Street Portrait
Location: Shinsaibashi, Osaka, Japan
Notes: Ritsuko and I were walking through Shinsaibashi with our friend Pastor Jeff MacKay and suddenly he called over this girl and asked her to pose for me. I'm not sure if he knew her or it was just random. One interesting thing I noticed about a year and a half later when I was showing this photo the buyer of this camera and lens as an example, was one of her bands had "W.W.J.D." on it. This made me suspect that she was someone Jeff knew, but I still haven't asked Jeff about this. Then I read somewhere that Japanese noticed many American Sports Stars wearing "W.W.J.D." bands that these have been copied and now sell in sport shops here (I've not seen any for sale personally). Taken with a Nikon D50 camera + kit Nikkor 18-55 (non VR, version 1) lens.
