An old lady selling flowers by the bus stop.

I've started a new 'thing' with my photography lately, which is to actually ask people first if they mind if I take their photo. I've been practicing my Polish so that I can communicate and this is the first photo that has resulted from this new focus.


Once I got talking to this wonderful old lady she relaxed a lot. She was full of questions - where I lived, where I was from, what I did for a living, everything really. I struggled with my Polish because I've been a very lazy student these past few years, but she seemed happy with my answers, and I'm certainly happy with the photograph.
