Make My Day by Rhoufi
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



In Melbourne, the narrowest lanes are the most popular. The old back lanes where the Melbourne ragtrade used to flourish have now become the frenzied centre for the cafe set, the best barrista hunters and the street photographers.
 
One face always looms out of any crowd making its owner the primary subject of any candid street photo.
 
You’ll be pleased to know that a split second after I took this, that face erupted into a brilliant smile as a result of something her friend said.

    Lovely image. Candid expressions can’t be captured if the subject knows they are being photographed.

  • Thank you Leanne… I agree completely, and it is those expressions that are the most graceful too :-)

    I absolutely Adore this!!! Her mind was totally somewhere other than….
    Wow…a crowded passageway, too. Such a space makes one desire to ‘zone out’.
    Love this candid!!
    Peace,

  • It’s going to be one of my favourites, Sass… I’ll send you a shot of what happened next – it’s a gem. This photo really made my day. These tight spaces have become the destination of tourists all over the world – the smaller they get, the more people want to fill them. Thank you cara… there are more to come too ;-)

    though I almost never do….
    c’est la vie

  • And to think I went to so much trouble to write it for you… humph ;-(
    Truth is, neither do I, ha!

    Alone in a crowd… splendid compressed street shot! How does one find solitude? You’ve caught the essence of busy, busy people.

  • When I look back at this after reading your observation Jan, I see what you mean perfectly – nobody is “together”; so much “aloneness” except her and is she going to connect??? She did. :-) Always love your observations, Jan… thank you.
