I peered from the upper stair - went back to the desk to get the V1 and hoped the scene wouldn't change.
From above, I saw what I captured. Only on approach did I have to say - don't move - "keep doing what you are doing." And I love it when it all comes together.
Focus was Auto Area - rarely of which I use - but in this case, as in most - I can't fiddle with technicalities - it's either there and I lock on - or nothing.
That's the beauty of it all - everything related to the scene is perishable - and it isn't the same 5 seconds later. I thought of a BW convert - but it doesn't pop - and becomes much too busy.
