Do you know this feeling? You just pressed the shutter button and you know instantly that you bagged yourself a winner, a keeper, without even re-checking the exposed frame on the rear display of your camera. A pic that alone was worth the photographic outing.
It happened to me again just minutes after getting out of the car. Approaching the “Ehekarussel”-Fountain I saw this little boy playing with water. That’s were having a ready to shoot cam in the pocket comes in handy. I had my Ricoh GR II in my hands an instant later, preset to my favorite street photography settings with snap focus activated. So it was just a matter of pressing the shutter without thinking about technical settings.
The little guy really enjoyed himself splashing water and he didn’t mind the attention and the smile he got from me. Bingo ! So my Saturday afternoon trip was a success after the first shot.
Some more pics from my outing, the B&W’s taken with the Ricoh GR II, the blended exposures with the Olympus PEN-F with the mZuiko 12mm f/2.0.
Have a good Sunday!
