Was heading back home along the Southbank promenade when Yeon came walking towards me. I’ve wanted to grab some shots down that way for ages as the bokeh is quite nice with the overhanging trees.
I stopped Yeon – she pulled out her iPhone ears – and then I launched into my stranger spiel. She seemed to have a grasp of what I was going on about and agreed to let me take her photograph. There were a bunch of people around, so I’m sure she was a little embarrassed, but you’d never know looking at this shot. Some of the others with her hands over her face – well you get the idea !
Yeon is a student from Korea and has a one year visa to study in Australia. I told her there is quite a vibrant Korean community in Melbourne so she would have a good time here. She has a pretty cool look going on, so I quite like this one.
