Solved by Bevellee, who correctly said it was shot on Princes Bridge here in Melbourne.
I’d never seen anything like the man’s outfit, except in “Arabian Nights” picture books when I was a kid, so when I saw this couple walking towards me, I knew I had to take a shot, even though I was on the opposite footpath several metres away.
Were they the parents of the infant, or the grandparents? I didn’t have a chance to find out. But I was entranced by the gentleman’s wonderful expression – and I thought it would be great if I could somehow protect the lady’s identity. As soon as she turned towards him, I hit the shutter, knowing her features would be hidden by the angle as well as by her headgear.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 70-300mm lens. F8, 1/250 sec, ISO 400, focal length 300mm.
