A bucket of love

Street photography is sometimes so surprising. So here I am sitting on a beach by Lake Geneva and notice a heart shaped bucket laying a few meters away. I take out my camera, mount a 85mm lens and start composing. A heart left alone on the rocks, isn't that full of meaning ? As I ready to click, a girl suddenly enters my frame and reaches to the bucket. My first reaction is : "damn, she is going to steal muy bucket", so I click straight away. It is only afterwards that I realized she was actually looking at me. That makes the story even more powerful, doesn't it, and even opens up the story. This being said, she was probably just thinking "why the hell is this guy shooting my bucket ?"

All in all, you are not supposed to know the real story anyways, this is street photography, so here is "A bucket of love" and I'll let you come up with your own allegory today. (click on picture for high res)
