Emily was walking past a dark blue wall across the street from me, just as I was getting back to work after lunch. Her beautiful red hair and interesting face caught my eye and despite my long hiatus when it comes to street portraits, I decided to ask her for a photo. At first I liked the colour version but then I felt myself gravitating towards the black and white the more I looked at it. It focuses more on Emily's eyes and expression rather than the colours, which I thought was more intense in the end.


Emily is an avid blogger and Instagrammer, and also works in marketing. Thank you, Emily! :)
