Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

29 Jun

My deepest apologies goes to all the people I ever invaded their privacy.

Almost every time I have a camera in my hand, which is quite often, I start with taking pics of the view and of me and my friends, but in the end, what defines a places atmosphere, its feeling, are the people.

Usually I snap my pictures without the subject noticing me, but every once in a while I get “caught”.

Once someone yelled at me to delete the photos, apparently he was some wannabe celebrity in L.A and thought I was the paparazzi.
In another time, the nice old couple asked to see the photo, they got so excited I ended up emailing it to them and got a wedding gig (their granddaughter) because of it.

I guess you never know.

Went to the park to snap some new “moments” photos, all were taken during the same 10 minutes, at twilight (perfect lighting), on my way from the metro back home.

A moment of tranquility

A moment for love

A family moment

    I love your shots Emma! They are all quite beautiful and tell a story of what is going on around them. 😉

    • Emma July 1, 2012 at 23:58 #

      It tells the story of what happens around me, sometime I focus too much on taking pics than actually living the moment…

        Interesting observation… 😉

    Congrats on the wedding gig!

    • Emma July 4, 2012 at 23:18 #

      Thanks 🙂
      The bride was so cute..

    awesome pics! I need to get a better camera with a zoom because I hate to be ‘caught’ taking photos… I want to perserve the moment and as you say it is defined by the people and it is better when shots are unposed.
    Thanks for the visit at CTB 😀
