French Students in Canary Wharf

I was in Canary Wharf on Business today and I met some French students before my Business Meeting.

I initialy saw this image above and caught the shot, what happened next caught me by surprise.

The young man leapt into the air and did backward flip - I had my Camera in Burst Mode and caught this shot. My Lens was the 35mm 1.8.

I went over and said hello, I complimented the young man on his acrobatics and asked him if he would be so kind and do it again for my camera.

He kindly did the flip again.

This was a fun moment at 10:30 this morning. I gave the young man a present in return, I showed him one of my Card Tricks, his face lit up along with his friends. Had a bit of chat, they came over from France with their School to see London.

Photography has supported me with being deaf, In order to get the shots I am after I need to interact with people some how, they can hear me speak, I have to lip read, smile and be friendly, it works.

Life goes on, one frame and one magic trick at a time

Its a great life and I am grateful.x
