On the streets of Hong Kong… Cotton Tree Dr

by Lee Oliveira on January 10, 2011

It’s challenging sometimes to stop people on the street and ask if I can photograph them. But I really like this ladies top. Since I started blogging I haven’t had the chance post any leopard print. So I didn’t want this time to be an opportunity missed.

Being high neck and long sleeve gave her a serious look. Or perhaps she had a leopard soul? Loving the facial expression.

Either way,  it didn’t really matter. At least she allowed me to take her picture.

Ps.. Love your bag too!

You caught her mood and expresion. True life is not always a pose… or beautiful models in the streets of Milan, anybody can do that, but to capture a soul, takes having one. You are fantastic my friend!!!!
Un abrazo fuerte.

What a great expression! I agree, she looks fab with that turtle neck, though not too pleased to be having her picture taken!! I love that you’re not afraid to ask (even those that look unapproachable)!

What a character here – I usually find that mock necks add some authority to a look.
Have a great week Lee!

Hey Lee!
I love the look on this woman’s face!! The leopard top is perfect for her though – especially with the red lipstick. Great photos – I have been really loving your use of “shallow depth of field”

reni January 11, 2011

to be honest, i’m not a fan of animal prints and i think it’s because i haven’t been brave enough to wear them, but the little swagger in that woman’s face makes her own that piece of clothing.

Tanvi January 12, 2011
