It was at Old Dhaka, a street vendor was selling umbrellas and people was passing by; my sixth sense said, “Here a photograph is waiting for me.” I got ready with my camera and suddenly a child came out and noticed me, but I wanted a candid, so after around five minutes when the child forgotten my present, she started playing something like hide and seek. I just wished, the vendor had not looked at me that time. I set a frame in my mind where two people would pass with motion one at right side and another one at left side.

Fishing on the Harbour by Leanne Lindsay

I love the energy of street photography - the unexpected moments, the stories waiting to be captured. This afternoon, I found myself drawn to a bustling spot along the Sydney Harbour foreshore. Crowds ambled by, enjoying the afternoon sun, but my eye caught something unique - a family setting up fishing rods! Intrigued I don't know why, but I never considered you could fish in Sydney Harbour. I waited patiently as they baited their hooks and cast their lines. The harbour, usually a domain of ferries and sailboats, suddenly seemed like a whole new world. Mustering my courage, I approached them, camera in hand. Explaining I was a street photographer, I asked if I could capture them in action. They were friendly and happy to chat. Turns out, they're regulars here, and despite the harbor traffic, they often have a good haul! This photo captures the essence of that unexpected encounter. The family relaxed and focused, their lines cutting through the vibrant blue water. The backdrop of the Sydney Opera House fading into the background adds a touch of iconic grandeur.
