This week’s Photo Challenge is a Fleeting Moment on the Street. The idea came from a spotlight on street photography.
I love street photography. There is always something interesting to take a shot of if you keep your eyes open. Still, with the specific theme a Fleeting Moment, the prospect gets trickier (though of course not impossible).
At first I struggled to come up with something. What would make for an interesting shot?
Then I remembered a shot I took while on a holiday to Vietnam a couple of months ago. We were sitting at a local cafe. By cafe I mean a small table and plastic chairs outside along the path which is the norm in Vietnam. I had been madly taking photos all day. A woman walked by with her bike and her daughter perched on the back. Kids are great to photograph, they are so open and their faces speak volumes, so I took a few shots as they went by.
Just as they passed me, the little girl realised I was taking her photo and turned back with a big smile. A fleeting but lovely moment. I hope you like it.
