Mother and Child
The decision to approach people to seek permission to take their photograph is never easy, especially when it’s a woman with a child. At home I’d only do it if I knew them and then it would be family or friends. Also I would be less inclined to post such photos here.
The woman was part of a group near to the ferry terminal and her daughter looked really cute with her traditional eye make up, so I went for it.
Some of the pictures that have been shown here have been presented with very little processing, and some have been hard work. This is one of those. The background was very distracting and I had to resort to moving the two figures closer together which meant that I had to find a way of dealing with the wispy hair. There are faults, so please don’t look too closely.
