I read somewhere, can’t remember where now, that luck is just where preparation meets an opportunity. Well, if that’s the case, I was lucky to capture this little girl as she was walking to get an ice cream cone. I was with the camera ready on my hand and thought the heladero, ice cream vendor, would be an outstanding stamp of the daily life around Antigua Guatemala, so I began to make the composition and to my surprise this little girl showed up and made the photo even better; ten times better.
I feel lucky to have been prepared when the opportunity appeared, don’t you agree?
