Sometimes you’ve just got to be quick

Sometimes, photography is about taking your time to compose a shot and make sure every detail of the image and camera settings are prefectly adjusted before hitting the button. Othertimes, you just have to have the camera in your hand, switched on, and in something that approximates the settings you need before hitting the button. This was one of those times, I just turned and shot the picture as soon as I saw what had happened.

This was taken on Boston Common, where a bunch of people were feeding the pigeons, and I just took pictures.

There’s a whole bunch of things “wrong” with this image. Most notable the sun on the grass at the back is completely blown white, and the image isn’t as sharp as it might be. That still doesn’t mean it’s a bad photo.
