One summer evening I was on my way to meet a friend at a bar down town. I had my camera with me – just in case – but had no real intention of doing any serious street shooting. Anyhow. While passing this street musician (as I rarely care do photograph them) I noticed two things. First: he had a full size keyboard that almost completely blocked the narrow alley he was sitting in, and second: an old man was giving him the evil eye while trying to pass into the alley.
It would have been a perfect image, but I was blocked by people passing by and couldn´t get the shot. Damn those tourists! I really felt i had missed out on a great opportunity, but decided to give it one more chance. So: I put myself in position, pointing the camera directly at the musician and waited. The boy obviously thought he was the main subject and was probably a bit distracted by the fact that i just stood there, never making the snap. But in the background, the older man was slowly making his path into the alley. Suddenly, he decided to turn around to give the musician one last evil look. Snap!
