I recently read an article aimed at improving street photography. Part of the premise was that simply taking shots of relatively interesting looking people does not make good street images. Instead looking for shots that capture facial expressions or physical gestures can be much more engaging (you can read the article here).

So, I thought I’d keep that in mind when I was shooting later that day.

The image above is an attempt to catch a facial expression. I was standing at a bus stop in the rain, disappointed that I’d not taken any good pictures that day. Then the lady appeared standing in front of me staring up. I liked her facial expression because she seemed to be transfixed. I called it Epiphany imagining that she was perhaps watching Angel’s lighting up the sky. In reality she is looking at the electronic bus stop, presumably trying to work out when her bus may arrive.
