The Look, on Greene Street, SoHo

The Look, Soho
Photo by myself on Greene and Prince Streets, in SoHo.

Once in a while, I will be rewarded with a deadly stare.

For some reason, I really love these shots. They are confrontational, with the person and me confronting each other. (Like that legendary runway scene in Zoolander, ha).

I find the confrontation to be honest. It's a nice departure from candids now and again, where the camera definitely has the upper hand.

It depends on the situation whether I just slither away after taking such a photo, or ask whether it's okay that I took the photo. If it's not okay, I will delete the photo without question.

In this case, the fellow gave me a nod a split second later, which broke the tension. No lives were lost.

It probably helped that I am petite and female!

Yes, that you are petite and female helped, I'm sure. So did the fact that the guy knew he looked good. Cool shot, Kitty. As much as I love photography, I know that people photos are not my strong suit.

Probably NOT the look of love . . . or do I just not get it?

I agree with Olivier; it's nice when the encounter ends nicely. And what a nice shot - doesn't hurt that your subject is very handsome, too!
