I saw this girl waiting for the streetcar and immediately wanted this shot. Problem was, if she saw me she’d react and no shot. And, cars were passing through my shot constantly. Then an SUV blocked her during a red light. I focused on the window above her head and waited out the light, knowing that once the vehicle was out of frame I could grab the shot before she noticed me aiming my camera at her. Worked out perfectly. The super lucky part for me is the sign at her feet with the arrow pointed right at her, and the people to the far left all looking the other way. This is also one of my favs from Sunday night.
