Amish woman and daughter on train from el paso texas to san diego california Street photography


This is a candid shot of a mother and daughter on an Amtrak train going from El Paso Texas to San Diego California.  It is not the perfect technical camera setting, but I'm inclined to believe (know) that the technical imperfections of street photography gives it a kind of natural beauty that would appear more clinical and dispassionate in a staged shot.   The woman here is clearly aware of my camera and (passively) aggressively trying to discourage me by engaging a side look  Whilst I respect the right of some privacy, the photograph comes first in a public area.  Interesting sidenote:  it was snowing quite alot in el paso, texas, somewhat unusual!
