I was drawn to this cool looking bike. However a New Yorker had other ideas and just walked right in front of me. Instead of cursing the New Yorker or moaning I pressed the shutter button.
The result for me is an engaging and lively photograph that depicts the busy lifestyle of New York.
Within two seconds he had walked past and then I also grabbed the photo I had originally intended on.
Which photo do you prefer?
Bike on the Street in Soho.
Obviously there are times when you don’t want people in your travel photos.
However, New York is very fast moving. Within a few seconds another opportunity will present itself.
Just wait in a spot and let the magic unfold.
