POINT AND HOPE - Los Angeles, CA, USA

Unedited. Sometimes you just need to press the shutter and hope for the best. I had my camera out in a moving car when these three people saw me and started hollering at me: not in a bad way, mind you: they were just high on... life, or something. The telephoto lens on my camera wouldn't allow me to focus on anything closer than just over a meter away, pretty much guaranteeing that the happy people up against my window were going to be blurry. Sure, I could've hopped out, asked them to wait while I switched to another lens, and and encouraged them to get crazy again on cue, and I probably should've, but I suspect the moment would've been gone. And anyway it turns out I like this one.
