I was testing a brand new lens, the Canon 40mm f/2.8. It’s a pancake lens, it’s very small and flat.

I saw this lady walking with her dog. I did my usual, kneel with one knee on the ground and wait for the dog to come to me. She saw me do that and stopped immediately.

I thought that she didn’t want me to take any photo (sometimes, it happens) but she started to leash her dog. I think that she said that she’s working for the city, but I’m not sure because it was quite noisy around.
