oops, sorry!

This shot is 90% patience, 10% luck.
I was sitting there, trying to achieve a decent composition with people looking at the band, when I saw this girl on the sidewalk, waiting to cross, hesitating on the edge of the curb. So I waited for her to cross the path and clicked when I thought she was in the right position (single click). That was when she noticed me: “oops, sorry!“.
She thought she had ruined my shot, but my smile with a winkle made her know she had gifted me with a nice shot.
