My favourite photos – Opportunity

This week’s photo challenge is guest hosted by Luca Sartoni:

“I took this picture at the Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills. I came out of my room to attend a meeting and that girl was there, waiting for someone, wearing that costume. I took that picture with my DSLR, a 28mm lens and with only a few moments to compose the shot.Opportunities arise unannounced. They don’t ring a bell. They just show up and we need to be ready to take advantage of them.

As a street photographer I know that most of the time I don’t have any control of what’s going to happen in front of me. I have learned to accept it and I prefer to focus on what I can actually do to catch opportunities: be prepared. I clean the lenses, charge the batteries, format the memory cards and most important, I always carry a camera with me. It does’t matter if it’s my DSLR, my compact or just my phone, what matters is that I’m always available to be surprised by the world and I’m always ready to capture the unannounced opportunities that happen in front of me.”

Here’s my take on the theme of “opportunity”:
