So this was the second last frame I took in 2009; actually that’s not entirely true, it’s the second last I took in Canada. That being said, it’s probably one of my favourites of the year and it happened by accident.

I was taking photos of people at the lamp post and forgot to turn off the focus assist light on my camera (it was dark and it needed help focusing), so it would go off every now and then. The guy in my frame wanted to take a photo of the lights behind me, so he had his wife/girlfriend stand in between him and I so that I wouldn’t wreck his shot with the light. The interesting thing is that the bright light around the hood, that’s the guy’s flash going off. So it’s not like he was trying to capture a shot without the use of a flash and my camera’s light was throwing him off.
