Photographer's Note

This old guy of Ainu decent was sitting in the front of a shop in a touristy group of Ainu novelty shops near Akan Lake in Hokkaido. Luckily he didn't notice me crouch in front of him to take this shot until he heard my shutter clicking, so I got a relatively natural portrait.

I chose a slightly slow shutter speed to capture the movement of the mallet. Any slower than 1/20 and I could not have hand-held the camera.
