On my way home I stopped to buy a drink. Exchanged a few words with the clerk and turned to my left about to leave but got caught up. A woman was standing next to a metal railing, back to me as she fumbled to get what ever it was from her purse. I rushed for my camera throwing my back pack to the ground. By the time I got to it she’d already crossed the street. I stood in the same position peaking through my view finder hopes of replicating the moment. A few minutes passed before the next train arrived All I could get were shots of people walking. I’m saddened I didn’t get the chance to snap a photo even equivalent to the one I missed. Photography is not only about knowing how to work your camera; It’s about being prepared as well.
