Girl with intense eyes


This is one of these unusual candid portraits, where I was not sure if its nature stayed truly candid. I took this photograph of a very pretty girl at Avoca markets early on Sunday.

She seems to be looking straight at me and yet at the same time she seems to be looking pass through me, as if she was looking at something in the distance behind me. I have an impression she has not seen me taking the photograph, which is always my intend as this way I can capture people at their natural best. However, I cannot be certain in this case as she seems to be almost posing. Either way: thank you – I like this photo.
