My guiding star

I was a bit apprehensive about taking this picture and at the time I felt quite 'moved' if that is the right word to use. I thought, here is an attractive young lady who has the misfortune to be blind with two young children and she's just getting on with her life and going about her daily grind, I thought she was courageous and I admired her. I think the picture is quite powerful and emotive and possibly the most powerful picture i've ever taken.

I was a bit unsure about putting it on my websites and also unsure about entering it for the themed camera club competition of 'Streetlife' but egged on by others I entered it and won. The judge said it was a brave choice and said it stirred up emotions.
