Overpoweringly Beautiful Blossoms

(click for huge)

From Okinawa Soba's Flickr stream, several vintage photos of geisha. This one stood out to me not only because it's strikingly pretty, but because it's unrestrained in a way that I don't associate with Japanese aesthetic. Instead of a few wandering tendrils of blossoms, she is completely enveloped by an explosion of dense blooms.
