A Lucky Shot
A Lucky Shot

This picture was taken on my walk along the Sharjah Corniche on January 6th 2010, shortly after dawn.  I framed my shot carefully, right in front of the minbar, to exploit the symmetry of the building.  As I clicked, I noticed a blur as a cyclist strayed into my shot.  I had just enough time for one more shot before he left, and this second shot is what you see here.  I think the lucky addition of this man into the frame makes this a better shot than the one I was planning.
