This is one of those pictures I really like but I am quite possibly alone I was holding my camera in landscape and using hyperfocal. I came round the corner and this girl was striding towards me. The photo was very skewed and I had to do some fiddly cropping. I wanted to put it on Instagram but it is one of those pictures where the entire photo, from her head to her toes is part of the story. Like I said, I really like this picture! I don't know why, it just talks to me.

This is a good photo in the tradition of "Street Photos".

Thank you. I just wish it had not been shooting from mid chest and could have framed it slightly better, then I would have had more cropping options. I am such a coward lol, although, quite often the perspective you get from chest rather than eye level is nicer. In this case I think it added to the boldness of her demeanour.

Make that waist height
