I’ve been laid up lately and not able to take to the streets with my trusty Ricoh GRII. Today was the first time in weeks that I went into Petaluma with the camera. I had luck with this one as the bright sun illuminated her face very well.
Nice to be back!

Passed this lady going into town today. She didn’t look very happy. I don’t know whether she was peeved with my camera or the fact that it was pretty obvious that she was about to get very wet.
One further thing. I believe the picket fence was a huge help with this composition.
Finallyly, I shot this photo with an Olympus EM1 MK II. It’s quite a machine. Complicated as hell but I suspect, once mastered, I’ll love it.

I really like taking photographs of people on the street with window reflections behind them. This shot is a good example of that. It’s out front of a coffee bar with the reflection of the city library in the background. The logo on the woman’s jacket serves as the picture’s title.
The natural light on the woman’s face is helpful too.

Her face is open to all kinds of interpretations; watchful, resigned, care worn or angry. Take your pick. All of the above or none. That’s the fascinating thing with street photography. The only sure thing is that the light falling on her gives a painterly quality to the image.

“A woman who rules or dominates a family, group, or state; specifically: a mother who is head and ruler of her family and descendants.”…Mirriam-Webster
Looks like one to me.
