Candid Capture & the Sagacious Glance

I met this woman on the streets of Nimbin. She was holding a street stall as a tarot card reader. I was struck by her interesting face when I saw her look up from the cards over her glasses during a card reading. Red heads can be very striking and their freckled skin is interesting photographically. This woman also has intelligent eyes, which is something I am always taken by. Despite all this, the first shots didn't really convey what I 'saw'. I had to work with her a little bit to get the shot I envisaged. I asked her to look down and then to look up at me again. At that instant I released the shutter and captured the sagacious glance that I had noticed walking by. See more street photography on my website.
