Elegant older woman

 on 


Obvious choices as a subject of a street photography are people in interesting situations, people in situations with juxtaposition or simply people immersed in some activity. There is also typical portraiture of interesting faces, hair styles or sub-culture clothing.

Todays photo belongs to yet another category – everyday person. This category stands somewhere between portraiture and “documentary journalism”. It focuses less on persons character and shows just an average person of our time.

Than again, when I look at this elegantly dressed older woman I wonder if the word average applies. She seems to have certain style bordering on sophistication – fashionable but not drawing attention.

Keep your tights on

One of these “caught in the act” photos. Fashionable as they may be the tights can sometimes drop down a little or a lot. Most girls deal with it discreetly but this woman simply pulled hers up through the skirt amongst many people waiting for green light at a pedestrian crossing.
