Dog Being Leashed

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 drop to my knee and raising the camera, I do not hide. She stopped immediately.

I thought that she didn’t want me to take any photo (sometimes, it happens). Instead, she dropped he poop bags and the handle of the leash to her feet and 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. It wouldn’t look good when people working for city hall are getting photographed when they are not following the bylaws…
