Word and Image

Face in the Window

IMG_0232This is sure to be a classic image for me. I was walking the old city Balad. The evening heat was still simmering. I was half melted. There in the window was a kid looking out at the passing crowds. As I snapped another woman commented it was a great shot. She did not copy me. And a moment later the kid was gone. I shoot multiples especially in poor light. Something is always wrong with focus or lighting. I have my favorite. It’s good to have a choice.IMG_0230

    Nice one. What camera did you use? I’m just curious. You know…that you courageously took a shot in Balad. 🙂

    • Canon S100 f2.0 lens. DSLR lens is slower. So this point and shoot is ideal for low light in Balad. Many people had cameras. Photography in and among this crowd was not tricky. Everyone was pretty nice about it. I was careful to not pick on families who might object.
