Man and Umbrella, Red Square

Photograph by Erich Geisler, My Shot

I was in Moscow for work and I made it down to see the Kremlin, Red Square, and St. Basil's Cathedral. After walking up from the metro's underground, I came upon this beautiful sight—the light, reflections, wet ground. So I set up for my shot, lens cap off, ready, set, and BOOM. This guy walks up in front of me with his camera phone and snaps a few. I was annoyed at first, until, of course, I saw the result. It's one of my favorite shots ever. Some of the best ones just happen out of luck or fate.
