It's funny how some pictures come together in a split second. This one reminds me how important it is to always have a camera ready. I never want to say, "Oh, if only I had my camera, this would make a great picture." This philosophy was rewarded the other day while walking down 42nd street. I noticed a shop window which was largely obscured by a black cloth. There was a sign that said "Window under construction." You could still see the mannequin heads and I took a few shots from a few different angles but didn't feel like I really nailed it yet. It was a busy morning, and I kept waiting for a break in the pedestrian traffic to get a clear view. I tried a few more shots and was about to move on. Just then, a bald man whose head was similiar to the mannequins and orbs walked by and I managed to squeeze off two frames before he walked out of the picture. And just like that I had my shot.
