Photographically speaking, I live for these moments:
The out-of-focus man in the background, in his positioning, is mirroring our foreground chalk messenger.
In actuality, he was reaching down to pick up a fallen football.
As I saw the scene unfold, I shifted myself slightly to the left, in an attempt to “fill” the photographic frame by expanding the spacing between the two subjects. This further enhanced the image by creating a more pleasing composition.
The actual mirroring of his posture, though he was engaged in a completely different activity from our little chalk messenger, is the sort of happenstance occurrence that a photography geek like myself is thrilled to capture.
A second later, he stood. The moment had passed.
