Walking down the street, I noticed a boy's head sticking slightly out of this gigantic metal security door. Whenever I'm walking around with my camera, I frequently pre-adjust the exposure for changing light conditions, even if no photo is present, in order to be prepared for the unexpected. As a result, I was already dialed in to the correct exposure and grabbed a quick shot of the playful child before he shied away from the camera. The final photo looks posed but in reality it was one of those great moments of serendipity that all photographers hope for.
