A simple quick hip snap on the street of Monastir Medina just to get the most out of the few moments in a foreign land of different culture, people and way of life.
Camera preset on manual, shooting without looking at the view finder when the target walked past giving me a much more interesting perspective as recorded by the lens with all the quirky angles while keeping my eyes locked forward preventing making eye contact as much as possible.
The joy of street photography is when I have captured through sheer accident when the curious intruder just popped up suddenly looking straight into my lens when shutter was released.
Observing people and capturing the brief moment of their lives give me a such tremendous gift as it happens before my eyes....

I like these discreet hip shots that you show us now and then. They show life from an amusing and unusual angle and sometimes result in very unexpected compositions. I wonder if the woman to the left was as curious and suspicious as she looks.

nice the use of the high POV from the street life of the natives in Monastir.It's difficult in these caountris to take photos especially from women.

I do the same sometimes with tourists in Las Vegas, it's fun to catch them unaware that they are being photograph. Nice capture considering the situation. Good exposure and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Un angle original qui donne très bien, le regard de la dame vers vous, les façades blanches et bleu, netteté et lumière excellente, belle scène de vie et présentation

A glancing moment, a second in the day of three people out of seven billion of us, and they never knew it was even happening. But we get to enjoy the result thanks to this most unusual form of photography which as you say can have surprising results. I am fascinated by this form of shooting, and have yet to capture an attempt of my own with any inferential, so always nice to learn from yours.

Original composition with the atmosphere of the street with these women, showing their different styles of dress, the distortion of the approach, creates a very original image.
A colorful perfect very natural.
The image is very bright with optimal clarity.
Enjoy the nice weekend.

So, you're into lomography now! Nice experiment, but you need to distort your colors even more to be at home with the best of them :-))

People don't like photos so much in this region:)! Sometimes you need to have imagination to get them:) It was a very good idea and it works. You get photos completely different. I like the result!

Very good shot especially for a spontaneous moment. It is like a quick glimpse of life as it happen and nobody notice it is recorded. All feel natural and as it should be. Excellent quality consider shooting against the light.
I love this type of stolen shot.
