As I recall this was taken in a “pocket” park somewhere on Second Avenue in New York City with a Sony NEX 5N and Sigma E 30mm (45mm equivalent) f2.8. I tend to shy away from pictures of people I don’t know (and even people I DO know for that matter). However, at the time I took this I was trying to convince myself that I could take “street” photographs. Some of them were OK, but I never became comfortable and so after a short time gave up on street photography and returned to my usual subjects. No point in pursuing something I don’t enjoy all that much.
