I may have been strolling in the park, capturing photos with the sun setting, however this was definitely no walk in the park. Realizing many of my photos are devoid of people, I attempted to make them the main element in some photos. However this was a lot harder than it seems. Let me set the scene:
Seeing that the sun was about to disappear, I scurried around the park searching for individual people strolling about with a nice backdrop. Upon finding several people, I just proceeded to take photos right? No. It turned into a game of grandma’s footsteps where they would hear me nearby, turn around and then stare at me. This was when the children’s game of grandma’s footsteps evolved into an older version where not only did I have to pause, but I also had to pretend I was looking at something else like a tree. As you can imagine, I was quite panicked when the person did turn around and so I took on an incredibly concentrated face, posing with a quizzical look as though I were in deep, pensive thought. And then when the person turned around to walk again, I would
run speedily walk closer to get a better angle, knowing I didn’t have long left until the subject turned around again.
So was I a stalker or a ninja? I like to think Ninja.
