Cooking - A photo by Alex Leonard

Photo Description

A woman cooking in a small alleyway just off our street. This was my first ‘street’ shot taken with my new Sony 55-210mm lens – which I traded my old Galaxy S2 for a couple of weeks ago (bargain!).

I’m still struggling a bit to overcome close up street photography shyness so perhaps the new telephoto lens can help me slowly work up to properly approaching people. Most of the time they’re completely happy to have their photo taken so I’m not sure from where my hesitation springs.
