Weekend Reflections: Friends

This is a walk-by shot.

Two dozen young people were having drinks and socializing.  As I approached the group, I pulled a small camera from my pocket, held it nonchalantly around my belt buckle, and clicked the shutter button as I sauntered past the group.  It came out pretty well, don't you think?

Yes, I love this kind of pictures, but sometimes it is not easy to get them!

Your "stealth mode" was perfect to get this candid shot of people enjoying life... were you wearing your incognito sunglasses, too?

Enjoy your weekend, Jack.

Kate said...

Never thought that you'd be a stealth photographer! Good job; any tidbits from the conversations?

joo said...

It came out perfectly Jack! I love your reflections:)

Luis Gomez said...

You are right Jack looks pretty good! Have a nice weekend!

Lynette said...

Very well indeed, Jack. Love me some stealth-photo-for-blog walking by! Love it!

Lois said...

Definitely! I'll have to try that.

It came out quite well. Recently, when I was at the Kemper Museum, I tried to get a shot of people looking at painting like you did recently and it felt so invasive. This resulted in blurred photos. I have found it difficult to take photos in museums, even though allowed without flash, but the attendants standing in each room seem to keep a keen eye on me.

Looks like it might be a wedding rehearsal party.

And you are one sneaky character. I think that's why I like you, although I would never, ever do anything like that myself.

Great shot Jack! Enjoy your Friday.

Looks like a class discussion of some sort. Good one!

Sharon said...

It turned out very well I'd say. Stealth photography can be very interesting.

I like to take pictures this way, especially to picture people, as I don't dare to ask them. Sometimes the result is surprisingly good, like this one!

RedPat said...

Good shot! I sometimes focus a bit away from someone and then turn and catch them before thy notice.

Ah la nonchalance... ;-) Is this what is called a hip shot?

Nice reunion ! Such a natural shot : I can almost hear the jokes and the laughes...

JM said...

Definitely yes, Jack!

Sylvia K said...

That's what you call a random shot on the run - and it worked.
Enjoy your week-end Jack!

Oh, another sneaky photographer! I do that. :)) Yes, this photo turned out very well.

Leif Hagen said...

Nice sneaky photo, Jake!
Cheers to them and cheers to you for a quick snap!

James said...

Nice job of capturing the moment!
The photo gives the sense of walking by and noticing this scene.
