Classic-Look Trio

Shenzhen, China view map

When I saw these three ladies sitting together,
a classic-look picture came to my mind.

I took this picture with their permission.
They were taking a short break after a whole-day work for a nearby bakery.

I found people could tolerate shooting by a stranger with a compact camera.
I had bad experience with a big camera shooting strangers on the streets.

Here we have to be careful taking pictures of people. This is why I don't have very much pictures with people in my galleries. Your picture is very nice with those three girls! I like the way they dressed, very special! V

It truly is a classic and classic looking shot, CM. Very well done. My only trip to China (1998) everyone seemed to be very into being in pictures and I only had my Nikon N70 and Pentax 645 to shoot with then. Things must have changed in that regard too, with all the other multitude of changes that have occurred there in the past 13 years, ~BV~

They are so cute...Chineses woman seem to know how to look good and show so much personality. I have to agree with the comment about street photography with compact cameras.

Great shot of three young maids all in a row.I enjoy street photography of every day life.
I agree,it is hard with a large camera,it frightens people off.
