Trying some street photography – the shot I missed

Last night around 8:00pm I fell a sleep infront of the TV, with this I was up early (6:30 am) and decided to take my camera with me on my bicycle and head downtown. This might have been the first time I’ve seen downtown so empty. Riding by some closed store fronts I saw a guy (possibly homeless) from far with his back facing me and the light was just right the framing perfect. I stopped grabbed my camera and snapped away, after 2 shots i felt satisfied and started heading towards him and thats when he deiced to jump in the middle of the streets and throw a bunch of cut cardboards in the air and dance around as they fell on him. Now that would have been an amazing shot!

Moving in the streets its very easy to miss that one best shot, you have to be very attentive to your surroundings and always be ready to shoot.
