Barcelona, Spain: March 2013

Sometimes when I am taking pictures of strangers in street photography mode I get a really nice reaction like from this woman who smiled and flashed me the peace sign.  I was pretty much right in her grille when she flashed her pearly whites and gave me a fun look.  There are other times, however, when the subject of my image gets really incensed by my ‘intrusion’.  If you’ve taken enough candid images you know what I mean.  And then I am having to be quick on my feet with a thank you or some other soothing words.  Or, just walk away happy to have my gear in tact.  9 out of 10 times no problem, but, that 1 in 10 could be a huge problem.  Shot on the famed ‘La Rambla’ spontaneously.

    Sweet shot Chris – I’ve seen you in people’s grill – it’s hilarious, and awesome that you go for shots when the opportunity is there, most people let the moment pass.

  2. Great candid shot, you really have talent for street photography!
