Shoot from the Hip

I was able to get outside today, after being sick (autumn always carry some kind of virus lol). I went out with the 2 boys and got some photos to stock ;-)

As we were waiting for the lights to turn green I decided to click the camera that was on top of little boy's stroller. I clicked without looking into the viewfinder (I dont have an lcd to see what I'm shooting). I was thinking too that the people on the other side of the lane would get conscious if I point the cam at them. I was glad the framing turned out well.


Nordic walking in the city...a healthy option!

    Anyway, I do that too. Whenever I go out to shoot, I take tons of pic in the hope that someday I could use them for a series or a meme.
