Surprised!

Surprised, originally uploaded by mungozan.

It´s been a while since I´ve posted anything over here, sorry about that. I try to correct that now and try to post an image at least once a week, starting now.

Yesterday evening, I was shooting at Kokkola evening market as I´ve done couple of times before. As usual, I was scanning through the market place, looking for people to shoot (no pun intended).

When I came across this stand with sunglasses, the girl was leaning over and organising the sunglasses. She didn´t notice me at first, so I thought I´d try something different.

I bowed down before her, taking my time to frame and waiting for her to notice me. When she did, I took the picture. Her reaction was surprised, but she was amused in a friendly way. So I think this method certainly paid off.

Something to try next time as well, I think..
