This shot was taken less than a second after The Easy Way. A potential customer has just ignored her offer of a flier/coupon to her Maid Cafe. As she looks down the street for her next target, perhaps she is thinking this job is not quite so easy.
For notes about what she is doing on the street dressed as a maid, see the previous shot.

Clever photo, good note, good title and a great expression on the girl's face.
Interesting photo to look at - nice one!

This is great...and though I like the little series...this shot is better I think. I like the composiiton better with just her and the sign in the background. The expression on her face is great...well done

Hai! The expression on her face says it all! Perhaps there's no easy way out for her, hope she'd be transferred to operations, giving away flyers could really be tiring. Still a pretty face after being ignored...nice story telling here Mike!

Wonderful capture of expressions of her face. Though I like your previous shot more due to the action you captured there but here also you captured the humor very well. Picture clarity is wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

I just can't get enough of the cosplay shots, it's simply such a fenomena that I have never seen....yet...
It's a very nice portrait of this maid, not a very personal view to her but still a great view of what it's like.
Sharpness seems to fad at the bottom of the photo but the rest seems very good.
Nice addition with the "Easy way".
What is it suppose to mean?
I can't help thinking though, for some strange reason it gives me memories from a video clip I have from a strange Japanese band, the song was called "Jatta, Jatta!" Trust me you know it when you see it!
Thank you for sharing.

The girl's attitude is funny, I bet that she know you was about to take a picture of her :)

very smart capture, very interesting note, it almost reminds of some scenes from the popular hollywood movie called "Memoirs of a Geisha".
i liked your previous shot too. nice framing.
