Get me out of here!

By Aldo Panzieri
I was waiting for my wife at a book store. She works a few hours a week at a Starbucks. It's not like she's working for the money, she just happens to love coffee, and being around young people who adore her.

I was looking at a photography book about street photography. I do a lot of that, but I found this book pompous, and long winded. I walked out of the book store to do some street photography. I didn't think it would be difficult to do pictures better than the ones in the book. I walked over to an ice-cream, parlor. This little fellow wanted out of this place, and he let me know it. I used my body to block some of the reflections. I liked the results, and I wish I could give that kid a copy of his picture.

This one made me laugh out loud Aldo, the expression captured is pure magic. I also love the reflections that you have captured.

"I was looking at a photography book about street photography. I do a lot of that, but I found this book pompous, and long winded. " Isn't that so true of so many tomes on photography?
