Getting good candid photos

Getting good candid photos is tough. In this photo, three girls are rollerblading on a pier. Luckily I was able to combine more than one subject here and got to include a large freighter in the background, resulting in added context to the overall composition.

The second girl has actually seen me, and that slightly detracts from the photo in my opinion, but it still works as your eyes are more drawn to the first girl.

I really enjoy seeing teens these days still managing to have a good time and out getting some fresh air and exercise. That's what this shot is all about.
