This photo was taken on a walk around Alexandra in Johannesburg. It is a poverty stricken township and most of those of employable age were sitting around doing not much. The people are incredibly friendly and Everybody wants you to take a snap of them to the point that you begin to pretend to shoot. This lady was somewhat different - she was busy and she was camera-shy not wanting to be captured facially, perhaps ashamed of her circumstances. As one of the few "industrious" people I saw that day she was clearly a very "house" proud mother and for me the shot captures the bond between mother and daughter.
Canon 5Dmk2; 95mm,1/500s, f4.0, ISO200.
