"Little Girl on the F Train" - Settings: ISO 1600, f/4, 1/125 sec, 50mm lens


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.

  1. 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!
