People On The Street
As we were wandering up Stephen Avenue Walk taking pictures, I spotted this fellow just sitting on a bench having a smoke.
I thought he had an interesting face. It looked weathered and with the eyes that had seen it all. I kept glancing over at him before I worked up the nerve to ask to take his picture. I snapped a few quick frames and was quite pleased with this one.
This was an unusual portrait for me. This lady came up to me as I was walking up the avenue, and said “Take my picture”. She then proceeded to pose for the camera. She turned left and right as the camera snapped away, she then closed her eyes tightly and tilted her head back, and I clicked the shutter to grab this shot. I thought she looked in pain, but after, she gave me two thumbs up and hustled off somewhere else.
Does approaching strangers hold you back from taking more pictures?
In the best light…
