While taking photos of the ‘Good Friday’ crowd, I often loitered a bit too long in places and worried that I’d lose sight of my group. During one of those ‘catch-up’ moments, I noted several policemen critiquing a military robot that switched positions every few minutes. Trying to catch up with the group yet also take a photo of the men and the robot, I didn’t pay much attention to the robot. Until I focused on its face and realized it was a real person.
I think I gasped and then laughed; I then asked permission to take a few close-up photos.
The encounter will forever burn in my memory!
