The Irishman And Alfie

Met this gentleman while trying to take a landscape picture last night. Loudly from a distance he approached me and suggested i take his picture, as I would never get a picture of an Irishman like him. I believe that might be true after our conversation! Anyway, how could I refuse such an interesting character! So I swung the camera around on the tripod and quickly fulfilled his request. There was no time for composition or even to consider focus. Just capture the moment, hope everyone is happy and get back to capturing the sun setting.

 

During the evening various people came over to me to ask what I was looking at or what was it i saw. It seems a camera on a tripod convinces everyone you are a professional even when all you hoped for was a quiet night to better know learn this craft. Still it meant I got to take this gem of a photo. What do you think?
