The Kiseru is the pipe the lady is holding. It is forbidden to carry weapons, so the Kiseru is a symbol of power as it can be used as a weapon, even though it is just a smoking pipe.

The story? Don't be fooled by those people that look innocent, they have the potential to stab you in the back at any opportunity. When they do, just simply dodge the attack and stay away from them =)

Such is life....

The construction. The lady was dancing in the street, the hills I took with my new iPhone 5 (which is frigging amazing for photography, this original image is over 5000 pixels wide) through the car passenger window going down the motorway. Clouds from sky photos and the tree is from somewhere near Appleby. Bended the pixels to tone and light the photo to finish it off.

I just wanted to register my appreciation of the work you are doing here K_T. Always entertaining, strangely compulsive viewing and in a dark class of its own.
