In and Out of Bondage

By Robert_Malcolm  
The young woman on the left was waiting for her daughter to finish playing on a piece of chrome street furniture. She is tied to the buggy, tied to the child and her hair is tied back. The young woman on the right has no such ties. Usually I find that titles require some examination of the photograph (except for food), but this one came to me as I was about to press the shutter.

I'm well aware that street photography has, traditionally, been all about being involved and using a short(ish) lens, but despite the proliferation of cameras in phones many people have become curiously suspicious of a substantial camera being pointed in their direction. Longer focal lengths can be problematic, if not only because of equipment scale, but are an interesting and alternative challenge for use in this genre for a remote observer.

The distance for this shot was about 60-70 metres.
