Here’s what happens when you are not stealth-like when taking street photography shots…

Instead of capturing diners chatting over a scrumptious meal at a fancy restaurant with picture windows and white linen table cloths in a charming European-style city, you snap one woman looking at you inquisitively and a guy who looks like he might run out of the restaurant and beat you up.  Kind of like the shot below.  When it comes to taking photos, I’m learning that sometimes timing is everything!

  1. LOL that’s awesome. At least you were brave enough to try … that’s more than most photographers. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t.

    • Thanks for your encouragement, Lindy! While it wasn’t the pic I was hoping for, it makes me laugh when I look at it, and I still love it. I will keep trying.

  2. I love this photo, it would have been perfect if they didn’t gave you that look ! I love all the elements in that photo. The lettering on the window is nice, the chairs, the lightings, it’s a perfect composition !

  3. Great attempt – Love the looks. Thanks for sharing!

  4. LOL I’m always too scared of taking pictures of people because I’m afraid that will happen HAHAHA! Awww it’s ok, it’s still a nice picture haha 😛

  5. Know what? Sometimes the “fails” are the most interesting to look at 🙂
    I like it.
    But then again, I like everything you do, “mistake” or perfection 🙂

    • Thanks for the encouragement. I’m glad I took a shot at this pic, and I like that it makes me laugh when I compare what was in my head to what I actually captured.

  6. I think it’s funny …….. and lucky for you, the gentleman did not chase you


I love hearing from you!
