SF Indian Market 11

If there is an event with a large crowd you can bet that you will find someone wearing an outfit that will make them stand out in the crowd. She happened to walk right by me. What do you think, Oriental or what?

First thought, Oriental ! I suppose she is also doing some good services cleaning the street !

Lowell said...

Looks like a Japanese "dress," but I'm really not up-to-date on such things. Nice to see that you've got her back. :)

Halcyon said...

Interesting get-up. I won't make any guesses. ;)

VP said...

I would probably step on it by mistake...

Different...I guess it's not so comfy for these hot summer days! :)
Great shot!

Yes the costume does have an oriental flair. Looking at her shadow it seems she might be carrying a large lollipop or a mirror?

Luis Gomez said...

Wow! Very interesting Randy.

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

Seems Oriental. Definitely eye-catching!

Sharon said...

I really can't figure this one out. Strange is the descriptive word that pops in my head.

Yes I guess so, yet I see this sort of clothing every day as usual.

Michaele said...

Not sure - but I am thinking hot. Good thing for the umbrella!

TexWisGirl said...

the poof in the back is interesting, to say the least. :)

Judy said...

Strange, I don't think I have seen an outfit like that one. I wouldn't like the bit dragging on the ground.

She does look a little oriental Randy, the parasol is a bit of a giveaway, I seem to remember oriental ladies using them to protect against the sun.

Magpie said...

Oh, this definitely leaves me wanting more...you know like hungry in half an hour...must be Chinese. :)
I'm guessing it was a hot outfit also.

RedPat said...

Eccentric anyway!

cieldequimper said...

Hmmmm I'm not sure that's a geisha... :-)

Traveling Hawk said...

I agree with Wong! The umbrella gives the Japanese touch but the rest? I came some month ago from Japan but I haven't seen such a dress there...It's more pretending to be oriental, more to stand out..I wouldn't wear it but...de gustibus non disputandum (we do not speak about one's taste)

Michelle said...

Wong's comment cracked me up!

Eyeliquor said...

I am with Red Pat.
Cool series Randy!

Nancy Claeys said...

Umm, Oriental with a touch of bag lady? Lol.

Kathy said...

A little wide to be a geisha!

lifeisaroadtrip said...

A pink Geisha, for sure!

Kate said...

Unusual garb for Indian Market.

This shot reminds me of the night market here in Malaysia.

But of course the market in the picture is not at night but the feel is the same.
