Street Panorama – Weekend Shopping No. 3

Weekend Shopping No. 3
© 2013 Martin Liew Photography

Here I was at the same spot outside Mustafa Shopping Center, facing the road junction of Syed Alwi Road and Verdun Road. With camera all preset, I kept on waiting for any interesting character to come by, and yes this African fellow walked right into the street scene. I had spotted him on the other side of the junction. He was on his cell phone as he crossed the road and halted right in front of me. I lifted my camera to my face, looking through the viewfinder. Then I saw an Indian man walked by heading to my left, also on his cell phone.

I anticipated as I got the composition right and ready to press the shutter release button when all are in positions. This is the fun part of street photography where we have to anticipate based on our close observation and knowledge of body language.
