Quest: Valetta

The weekly theme is ‘quest’.

The moment I saw this scene on a hot Sunday afternoon in Valletta on Malta, I knew I had to take a photo. In my imagination there are lots of stories about the woman, and why she was walking there deep in thoughts. Maybe she was bequested by life at that moment. Sometimes I feel that taking a photo at a certain moment is like being an intruder in someone’s life. This is one of these moments.

  1. Thanks, Chris! I’m not fond of photographing people. When snapping spontaneously, it feels like an intrusion. When snapping with their knowledge, it feels masked. [Sigh]😉 xoM

  3. Beautiful composition. The “smallness” of the woman against the dreary wall of the building evokes such strong emotion and, yes, begs the question: what is her story.
