Play me a song, dude


I shot this a couple of weeks back during a walkabout through Kensington Market on Pedestrian Sunday.

The guy was playing his guitar and not paying any attention to the crowds of people meandering by. Kensington Market was packed, as it always is on Pedestrian Sunday. Me, I stopped dead in my tracks and held my camera at waste level and and simply waited for him to “feel” my presence and look up. Of course, the first place he looked was at my face, likely wondering why I’d stopped. At that moment I snapped the photo. At the sound of my shutter firing, he looked down at my camera. By the time it registered to him that I’d taken his photo, I was already walking away.

Sometimes the best shot is not the first shot you can get, but the one that comes with a little bit of patience.
