Entry Description

We have just finished shooting long exposure of Dubai skyline at The Terrace Creek Harbor; I packed my gears and head to parking area. Suddenly I was mesmerized by the lighted stairs with silhouettes of people coming up and down. Immediately I unpacked my gear and took out my camera. I framed my shot but all I got were images of people going up and down. I waited for something to develop. Suddenly, there was this little girl trotting within my frame unmindful and oblivious of people around her. I composed and took this shot. Oftentimes in life, just when we are about to quit, opportunity comes. It's up to us to take the shot or just pass it of.
