I was merely taking a snapshot of this tram because I love trains and train-like transportation. This one is private, and it connects the parking lot with the museum complex at the top of the hill. An unexpected reaction transformed this image into something more.
So initially, the subject was the tram. However, with the enthusiastic reaction of the passenger, the dynamics changed. It has unintentionally morphed into a humous street photograph.
I wonder how many famous photographs were just a result of luck? The backstory has long been lost, and the image grows in stature over time. The origins of which were less than amazing if you knew the entire story. However, there is something to be said about shooting a lot. The more you shoot, the luckier you get.
