Photographer's Note

It was a race against time to get this shot. I had just rounded a corner onto this street when I saw a couple making their way home for the evening…or maybe they were headed out to the clubs, who knows?? :) I couldn’t get my camera out of the bag fast enough, even though they weren’t moving quickly, the moment was fading in a hurry.

The late afternoon sun wasn’t providing much light in the narrow alley’s, so I had to boost the ISO some in order to get at least a high enough shutter speed for a longer focal range. Can’t say that I wanted to run up behind them for a steadier picture, the spontaneous moment would have been lost and I would have walked away as another annoying tourist receiving a verbal scolding!

Thanks for taking a look!
