17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
The Girl On The Tram

I spent a week in Lisbon, during which I wanted to take a photograph of people riding the trams. I wasn't pleased with any of the photos that I had taken, and so dedicated my final morning to trying to get the perfect shot. I spent around 2.5 hours standing on a street corner photographing trams as they went by. Finally this particular tram came along and it just to happened that the girl looked directly at me as I pressed the shutter. I knew then that I had my shot.
