The other day, Niels invited me to take a trip with him to Queretaro, Mexico, a little over an hour away from SMA. While there, we walked around and did photographer things. You know, take pictures. While Niels and his wife, Claudette, were getting maps of the area, I looked across the street, saw this beautiful, yellow building. I framed it up, but there were only 1 or two taxis in front. I thought, how great would it be to have a whole line of taxis in front. Light change.
The next stop light, my wishes were answered. Add to that, as I was about to take the photo, Niels noticed me framing it and said: Wait! There are some people in red shirts about to walk into the scene. I waited a beat, saw them, and clicked the shutter several times.
I love the shot. The only thing that got to me was the drab, green trashcan in the lower left; however, as yellow and green go together, not an issue. I just didn’t have time to get in front of the can, but that’s OK. Better to have gotten the shot with the can, than to have missed the shot entirely.
I tried cropping the trashcan out, but that removes too much of the street, so, I just left it the way it is.
