In Your Face Street Portrait (B&W or Toned)

Challenge has finished
Welcome to the 2nd Challenge in the Disturbing Or Intense Series. PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE RULES. ESPECIALLY with regard to the SUBMITTED IMAGE SIZE. Looking for an engaging, confronting & powerful environmental portrait of one or more people in a street setting. Subjects MUST be AWARE & be COOPERATIVE. We are not looking for pretty or beautiful. We are looking for a "Life Narrative". An image that tells a story of the character & life of the subject. This one should test your patience, your diplomacy, persistence & skills of observation. As well as your technique in approaching people & convincing them to cooperate. Pls take your time. Be honest with your subjects. Observe & of course, use common sense in choosing a situation that will not result in your beloved equipment being taken away to be sold for illicit substances :) Have fun!
