Lisbon people

Little background - saw this interesting guy at a bus stop in Lisbon. Was intrgued as to how he rummaged through his numerous pockets and little bags until he eventually found this little spliff in his sleeve. I tried to shoot discreetly from the front, but was not pleased with results. Then as I was leaving he whipped the joint out. I was now past the bus stop, but still able to shoot through the glass to get this image.

The background of the happy family does offer a contrast. Would have liked to have been more aware of the composition and cropped the lettering of the ad out. But hey!

More people of Lisbon to come. I find it so much easier to shoot people in places where I am a stranger and where the sun shines.

Enjoy your week.
