A Stroll on Evington Road

Its was a cold day, I decided to go for a little stroll not to far from my home. As I approached the road I happened to found this man sitting outside a cafe, I have seen him a few time when I have passed on this road and always have thought to my self I would like to photograph him, when I happened to visit again I was delighted to see him there! 

After taking his picture, he was grateful for the opportunity. I was quite happy with the image too.

There was something about this couple I found interesting. I find street portraits extremely fascinating, but the people that you photograph within your portraits are a representation of what daily life means to them. For example, the way people dress can give us a bit of information about them. In this image the lady has a dot on her forehead - this is generally a sign in Hinduism that the women is married. Little aspects like this in an image also give the viewer a bit of an insight into the lives of these characters being photographed.

I enjoyed taking these images, however there were people I wanted to photograph but they refused to have their images taken. This is indeed the most common problem that most street photographers will face. I guess it is worth asking, you never know till you ask.

I hope you have enjoyed this post.
