Boy on Streetcar
There is a lot to be said for having your camera "oh so ready". I was crossing the street when I saw some kids on a moving San Francisco streetcar, brought the camera up, and without looking thru the viewfinder got off three frames. Don't "shoot street" with anything slower than 1/250th...in this case 1/320th...because humans are pretty fast and the city is faster. Did I get lucky? Darn right. The child's expression is nice and the blur just enough to depict movement. The rest isn't luck. I had my camera preset and my eyes searching. F8. Be there. Make your own luck.
