I really like this image. This is a single grab-shot that I got really lucky with. Walking through downtown, I noticed a nice row of benches curling around in the park across the street. Surprisingly, there were no people walking around at the time. Just this one gentleman who was sitting on the center bench watching the world go by. I liked the scene, which was about to vanish as the crosswalk signal was turning green, sending pedestrians scurrying. The scene was about to vanish forever. Thankfully, the camera was already in aperture priority mode so I didn’t have to fuss with it. Rather, just lift, check the corners and shoot. And just as soon as the shutter fired, I lost the scene. No do-overs.
After taking it, I thought it would be nice but nothing special. That changed when I brought it up at home, in Lightroom. As it turns out, he wasn’t the only one in the cross-hairs. I was as well! His expression made this photo!
