Photo Friday: the Right Timing

JpegThere’s something about this place that gives me nostalgia. I would walk pass this area wanting to take a picture to keep in my pocket. One day on my way to eat, I realized that there was nobody around (at the time), so I took out my camera and right when I pushed the button – he showed up. I immediately felt bad and apologized. I like to document certain moments of my life but I don’t want to use people as props in doing so. Fortunately, I did not offend and the picture ended up being more meaningful than I imagined.



  1. Eileen, I totally understand the feeling of being apologetic when you take people snaps. I’ve always wondered how does Basil (my travel partner and hubby) manage to do so without feeling a thing. I try to hide my face in a book or look away – not that it takes away the guilt. 🙂 When we travel, I’ve found many cameras clicking away and sometimes pointing in my direction. So I guess what goes around, comes around? 🙂


    1. I wasn’t even trying to take a picture of anybody. I took out the camera to take a picture of the architecture that reminded me of my past. It just happens when I pushed the button of my camera phone – he shows up. Talk about the right timing!

      1. I get the setting. 🙂 Been there many times. I’m just happy to be the one who’s thinking and not clicking. In tourist areas – it really is a test of a photographer’s patience / persistence. Btw, loved the shot! 🙂

        1. Yeah, there are many shots that I could’ve taken but decided to just live the moment. It’s better for my sanity and besides, some memories are meant to be kept to myself (it somehow makes it more special).

          Thank you, by the way!
