Saul Leiter (born 1923) is an American photographer and painter whose early work in the 1940s and 1950s was an important contribution to what came to be recognized as The New York School. His abstracted forms and radically innovative compositions have a painterly quality that stands out among the work of his contemporaries. Martin Harrison said, "He sought out moments of quiet humanity in the Manhattan maelstrom, forging a unique urban pastoral from the most unlikely of circumstances."

"Woman in sensible armor! A rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan. Often mistakenly referred to as “female samurai”, female warriors have a long history in Japan, beginning long before samurai emerged as a warrior class." It's not really geeky but I pinned it because it's awesome.

Onna-bugeisha (女武芸者) A type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. They are sometimes mistakenly referred to as female samurai, although this is an oversimplification. Onna bugeisha were very important people in ancient Japan. Between the 12th and 19th centuries. http://asianhistory.about.com/od/imagegalleries/ss/samuraiwomen.htm
Rare photo of a female samurai. Women were always powerful. In Samurai life, everyone was trained in warfare. / another caption for this photo: Rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan
A rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha. An onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?) was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. Many wives, widows, daughters, and rebels answered the call of duty by engaging in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honour in times of war. They also represented a divergence from the traditional "housewife" role of the Japanese woman. They are sometimes mistakenly referred to as female samurai, although this is an oversimplification. Significant icons such as Empress Jingu, Tomoe Gozen, Nakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako are famous examples of onna bugeisha.
