Street Photography is about capturing scenes of every day life as it happens. Like this girl reading a book while sitting in the window of a coffee shop in Portland. I liked her style and the just so slight smile on her lips. I was standing on the sidewalk directly in front of her, snapping a few initial photographs. I always want to make sure to capture at least one good shot before the scene changes.
Then I waited, camera at my eye, for her to look up. I would have loved to take a portrait of her. But she didn’t look up. Not sure if it was because she noticed me snapping away at her. Or because she was fully engulfed in her book. But I guess also this falls under life as it happens ;-). After a few minutes I moved on. Street Photography is so unpredictable. This is why I love it!
Shot with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4. Image specs are 1/200 sec @ f/4, ISO 320.
Have a great Thursday!
