I stopped into the International Center of Photography while wandering around New York this week, and just had to grab this photo. I stalked the shot for a while; fortunately the subject was quite entranced and was there for a long time, as I had to wait for other people to get out of the way. The path cleared, I fired two shots, and in the second, someone walked part-way into frame.

Patience and timing… two major components of photography!

It’s funny, a security guard stopped me. But I think he was waiting for me to get my shot before telling me “no photography”. Nice guy :)
