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.
