I love taking pictures of street vendors, of random street scenes. I’ll be perfectly happy wandering the streets taking random shots here and there. I like to pretend that I have a big professional camera around my neck (with a cool camera strap, please) and I go walking around urban scenes snapping away –even though people often just mistake me for a tourist with my point-and-shoot!
This photo was taken when we took a hike around Lamma Island. The vendor agreed to let me take her picture, but she didn’t want to show her face. A pity. She has just the kind of face that begs to be photographed… with interesting lines, full of character. Much as I love taking pictures of my children, I absolutely love taking pictures of seniors. Their faces and eyes have such stories to tell.
