Panasonic LX2, f3.6, 1/160, 6,7mm, iso100, colour JPEG converted and tweaked in PS 

I had been trying to get this shot from the other side of the tunnel. Waited while several groups of people passed by, but wasn´t getting a shot that pleased me, so I decided to move on. As I got deeper inside I crossed with this man and his kid. I couldn´t avoid listening to their conversation: They were talking about a gift the boy was going to receive and how he should share it with his younger brother..A few seconds later, instinctively I turned around and I saw it!! I moved quickly (fortunately I had been using manual focus all afternoon and hyperfocal was set) and fired..I must of have made some noise when I moved quickly because the kid turned around precisely when I made the picture!! Holding his father´s hand back, I could hear him saying something, don´t know what, but a second later I clearly heard his father reply: “Nah, don´t worry, hes just making a picture of the paintings in the wall…”
