Street Photo 3

By psu68    
Another from my recent adventure into street photography. This is a 100% crop of V2 - the original image.

I must say I intend to do this more often, it was such fun.

This was actually an old woman, one of many unfortunate homeless people who populate the central city, and the temperature was in the mid 60's. They wear all of their clothing according to the season.

Good detail in the V1 crop, Art, but I like the full context in V2, showing that tatty carrier bag, her strong shadow, those rolled up jeans, socks and trainers. Then I compare her to the pedestrians in the background and the tourism shop. It all comes together.

Thanks to everyone for their comments. They say every picture should tell a story, and in this case I am gratified that the story was apparent.

Thanks, Art
