A night on the town I

By saltireblue    
Start of a mini-series...
The title is, I admit, a tad misleading, as 'the night' was merely one hour starting at 19:30ish.
I decided to try something I have not done before, and have a go at night street stuff, so drove into my nearest town after darkness has descended. Made my way to the square, and despite the restrictions of lock-down meaning that most retail outlets (apart from essentials) were closed and there was not that many people out and about, I did manage to get what I consider to be 6 or 7 images worthy of being called keepers. Here is the first offering, a young female waiting at one of the bus stops.

Many thanks for all who showed their interest in 'Quiet, please' last week - all very appreciated.

Thanks for bothering.

Well done Malc for being brave enough. I have had altercation in daylight trying to take pictures of some people. I don't think I would try it at night here anyway right now unless it was a crowded environment. A great result though.

Terrific atmosphere of loneliness but also of self-reliance.

Not much to add, really. But I do like the composition with its various verticals, while the figure is clear yet unidentifiable.

Exactly what I was after when I saw her standing there...the light illuminating only her lower body...

Interesting street photography.
As a grandmother, I worry about what our young people wear
not forgetting our own days of mini skirts!

Nice atmospheric street shot, Malc. I like the strong verticals in the composition balanced by the less obvious horizontals of the road and the background shop lights.

I agree and in view of the current situation with violence against women, some very disturbing questions.

There on the hunt here for a male of interest who is stocking young women. She may be videoing you.
Take care out there. A super dramatic start to your series. Looking forward to more.
