Street Portrait (for and of Carla), 2012

OK, so this shot is a bit of a cheat. Carla was unaware of me taking it. Her whole attitude, the way she smokes and her ear-rings just made a great picture for me. But I thought I could improve on it, so I asked her if I could take her portrait. She agreed and I took two full-length and two head and shoulders portraits, (with the intention of using them, because she looked great) but every one of them was ruined by me not noticing a sign on a window behind her that looked like it was coming out of her head. So, thanks Carla for all the shots and I’m sorry I had to use a candid shot. Hope you like the picture, anyway!
