I don’t get much opportunity for street photography, but every time I do I’m reminded how difficult it is for me, and how exciting when things work out.
I saw this woman approaching me on the other side of the street and realized there was a photo opportunity in the making, if I could time it right. It was one of those situations where there was barely time to get the camera to my eye and press the shutter.
There are several things I like about this image; the contrast between the linearity of the building and the shape of he woman in her long dress, the contrast of textures and the contrast between the static building and the implied movement of her stride. But what I like most is her. She looks like she knows where she is going, and she is confident she will get there.
