Street Photography No 2

When time permits I love walking around the streets of Melbourne looking for an opportunity to capture a character, especially where that character has a persona about them that conveys a message.

In the following photograph the old woman is well known around Collins Street in Melbourne.  I watched her walking up and down stopping and asking for a donation from every passer by.  Rumour has it that she is quite rich,  however that is not central to the photograph.  What is central is the older style head-wear and the character that comes out in her face. In an unspoken way she evokes images of a time that has passed.

Hope you enjoy the image.
