Old Lady walking by O'Neill's Pub in Dublin

I would like to say that this was a perfectly planned and executed photograph, but it was kind of a fluke. I was taking pictures of the decorations in the top windows of the pub when I noticed that two thing had happened. Firstly the normally busy street below had cleared up, and secondly, this wonderful character was approaching my field of view. So, I quickly adjusted my zoom, re-framed my shot and caught her mid walk, with just enough motion blur to convey the movement. I was delighted when I saw the result. And the lesson to be learned? Always pay attention to your surroundings, even when focussing on something else because you never know what might happen!
