Walking around my home town carrying a DSLR (Canon EOS 7D), fitted with a long white lens (Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L tele photo) gets you a lot of attention. So, I was not surprised when this little fella in a blue shirt, riding a cycle, called me from the other side of a canal and asked me why I am carrying around this big camera. I simply smiled at him and told I was looking for birds. More queries followed and I responded by taking a pic of his.
The reaction to the photo was not very nice - he drove away in his cycle in a hurry and I was wondering, if he was offended. I got the answer when he came back in a few seconds, with his friend in tow. He did not want to miss the opportunity to get a picture with his friend!
He did not even tell me his name and did not even bother to take a look at the picture - all that mattered was that his friend be in the picture too!
The pic came in Av mode, f/6.3 and auto ISO for a 1/500s and ISO-250.
