Sometimes I take 50+ photos to get a photo I like. And sometimes, as with this one, I take just a few.
I was driving through Chimaltenango after a heavy rain and I passed a man riding his horse down the street. He was moving at a pretty good pace. I remember debating whether I should take the photo or not. I wasn’t sure about the lighting and I was in a hurry but I stopped just ahead of him, jumped out of my truck and was able to take just 3 photos.
I take all my photos with my iPhone. I had a DSLR but I ended up selling it. I almost never had it with me and when taking photos of people it seemed so intrusive. Best decision ever. I could NEVER have gotten this photo with it.
When I see a good photo opportunity, I’m working on taking the time to stop and take the shot. Sometimes I’m intimidated to ask, and other times I feel like I’m in a hurry, but I almost always regret not taking the photo. I can actually remember photos I wish I would have taken.
