CONNECTING FLIGHT

I was in a rush to catch a flight from Hong Kong back to London, when I saw the potential of this photograph. The composition appeared, in that instant, immaculate to me. And so, I unpacked the camera I had foolishly crammed at the bottom of my suitcase, frantically taking out clothes before managing to take one photo an instance before the man on the right walked away. I did not even need to check the photo - I knew I had gotten it. I then crammed everything back into my suitcase and managed to catch my flight.
