Street Portrait (for and of Para), 2013

Para had stopped with two of her friends and they were trying to get their bearings, when I pounced. She was so nice about me taking the shots – it was quite an involved process of putting down bags, coffee etc. And it was cold. I loved the simplicity and elegance of her look. Thanks very much, Para! Hope you like your picture.


As I was saying in my previous post, one of the pleasures of my street photography routine is using shuffle on my MP3 player. The song that was playing as I spotted Para was Hiding All Away by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, from their 2004 album Abattoir Blues.
