Haste

I called this photo 'Haste", because it does look like this old man is moving very quickly. It was taken very hastilly from across the street and in very low light, hence the blur. I like the effect. Also, though he wasn't moving that fast, he does cover quite a bit of ground, for a few days later I saw him in a totally different part of town. Or maybe he took the bus. I guess 'Haste' could apply to my speed in taking the photo.

In this case, "haste makes" a good shot.
