An E-Rider, a Bus and a Building, this may appeared to be a regular street shot photo, but no, there's more to it, two seconds "before" I pressed the shutter, there was no bus or e-rider in the view, can you believe? ( scroll down )

A BRIEF MOMENT

Things happened unexpectedly, this is one picture that sums up that situation, I could never possibly get this picture were it not for my lens already pointing at the direction and also a decision to just SHOOT

It was hot and sunny, I was framing the building and a shop below it in my camera view, just when about to click, the bus came into my frame and stopped, totally blocking the shop I was aiming at. A man wheeled in and also stopped in my framing, both abruptly cut in at the same time because of a traffic junction on the right which is outside this picture, they'd thrown my composition off and I was distracted a bit, the changed scene however appeared noteworthy though, like they were there posing for me and thought I'll just snap it in case it turns out great, I captured this just in time before they move on seconds later, than I continued with my intended shot of the shop and building.

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH

When I review the two pictures in post, one the original idea of the shop and building, the other with the bus and e-rider, the juxtapose says everything. The original idea shows a picture, this one tells a story, had I waited out for them to leave or a brief moment of hesitation, I'll lose this precious moment forever.
