Lady selling bread in Napoli – street photography on film

I had just a moment to take this photo and it is not easy when you take street photography on film, especially with a manual focus lens. After this lady turned her head towards me and noticed me taking a picture she smiled, which would ruin this frame for me.

Did you just take a photo of me? asked the lady in the window. Yeap, sure, why not. I had just a second to capture this one, before she changed her face to smile, so it’s slightly out of focus. Did I mention I use only manual focus fix lenses in my ever film street photo?
