State of Mind

By eric55    
I made the capture my usual way. Simply walking on the same sidewalk as the subject, and made the capture within about 20 feet of him. He gave me eye contact and a smile. Clearly he knew what I was doing. He did not respond negatively nor with hostility. Why not? It was nothing I had done that caused this. Rather, it was his own state of mind. A street shooter true to his craft only records what is there and how the world interacts with him. The subject's behavior the shooter cannot take responsibility for. The subject's behavior is a reflection of his own state of mind and how he relates to the world around him. Some live in a state of hostility and fear. Others do not. Everyone's state of mind is their own responsibility as is the consequences of adopting that perspective.
