At the Bend funfair in Aachen.

Originally I wanted to get the faces of the couple, but I didn't dare to lean over the counter, or to shout something. The guy with the gun noticed me nevertheless.

The depth of field was done with Gaussian blur.

Rheinblicke, Aref Nammari (goplayer) have particularly liked this photo

Vorurteile stimmen ja normalerweise nicht. Ich denke allerdings, dass Frauen mit Kopftuch eher konservativ sind.

Zusätzlich gibt es aber angeblich das Kopftuch als Protestsymbol, mit dem sich muslimische Mädchen von der Mehrheitsgesellschaft absetzen wollen, von der sie sich missverstanden und abgelehnt fühlen (bzw. werden). Also eine ähnliche Funktion wie die Symbole der Punk-Kultur. Vor einiger Zeit habe ich einen Artikel (in Spiegel-Online?) gelesen mit dem Titel "Das Kopftuch ist Punk!".

This is the website of Princess Hijab who is of the opinion that the headscarf is now Punk. (If I remember right.)

Well congratulations then for a very successful first attempt. I used to be very interested in street photography until I realized that I had a problem with photographing people without their consent and so I stopped doing street photography for the most part--I still do occasionally though.

Maybe it was luck.

I find it difficult too, to photograph strangers form close distances. I find street photography to be the most interesting subject however. Therefore I want to try it too.
