As a photographer I CHASE motives. Walking around, being very alert while having the finger on the release button of my camera.
On that particular day the Mexican sun and hours of walking slowed me down. I drank an energy drink to recharge my batteries.
I didn't work. I wanted to stop but also I did not "catch enough fish" to be satisfied.
So I was looking for a good mix of background, light & shadows.
I found the perfect setup! So I just stood there and waited for people entering my setup.
No need to move and chase motives. The motives came to me!
This applies to other areas in life as well. Sometimes you have to chase. But there are times where you search for to be "at the right time at the right place".
Look for the opportunity and be patient (note to myself)!
