The image for today was taken two minutes after the one posted two days ago – click here to see that previous image.
Street photography is not easy and I’m not entirely comfortable taking candid shots of people. Everyone has a right to privacy and I have no desire to make myself appear intrusive. The coward’s way out is to use windows as reflectors so that the people who feature are completely unaware they are in the frame.
I spotted these hands of male mannequins in a shop window and lined them up for a shot when this couple’s reflection drifted into view. Instinctively I took the shot. The problem is that the couple are not as sharp as they should be. The camera has focused on the window display rather than on what was reflected. There was no chance I was going to shout: ‘Hold it right there please while I take a second shot, if you please’.
So here’s the image. But how do you title an image like this without resorting to stereotypical clichés? Your thoughts on that would be most helpful.
