Photo 276 out of 365 – “Little Girl on the F Train”
I spent much of the day in midtown yesterday and I must say, I find midtown to be a very difficult place for photo inspiration. It was on my way home, when I found inspiration sitting across from this little girl on the subway. She was such a gorgeous little thing – with enormous brown eyes. She was speaking a different language with her mother, but quietly, so I couldn’t really make out which language it was. It seemed as though she was mad at her mom for something, because she kept making this angry face with a furrowed brow (which was incredibly cute). Then she looked up at me – and I smiled. She maintained her angry face, so I sort of copied her and furrowed my brow and pouted too. That made her smile a little bit. Then she stuck out her tongue at me and I stuck mine out right back at her. That really made her smile. No one noticed we were having this little moment, which made it all that more fun.
She is a cute girl !! and what a fantastic moment you had … I´m very shy when it comes to photograph people in the street, I wish I had a camera in my eyes so people won´t notice me taking a picture. I do love this type of photography!!
I’m still shy when it comes to taking pictures of strangers too. I have to be in the mood… and usually, I’ll ask them, but then it sort of takes you out of that spontaneous moment a bit and becomes more posed… it’s a constant struggle for me. Thanks for the comments!
Midtown stinks…and is unfortunately where I spend most of my time, which makes it hard on photo365, but somehow we manage.
