    Difficult to imagine how such a perfect composition can be candid. But I believe the very best candid portraits are candid. People who are not conscious of the camera have such natural grace, and you have captured this so well, Val

  • Thanks very much, Rhoufi. She was walking quickly by, actually, seemingly in a rush to get somewhere, and once I caught sight of her, I began to take a succession of shots until she was out of sight. It was lucky there wasn’t anyone behind her for this shot, which turned out to be my best bet with a profile. Really appreciate the kind comment! :-)
