the greatest form

i spent some time in tarapoto, sauce and lamas hanging out with a spanish guy i'd met. he was into photography as well, which meant that i didn't feel too concious about stopping and taking a picture of seemingly nothing, as he would frequently do the same as well. as the rain lashed down i tried to get a fast shot of a water droplet, which wasn't easy as it required a perfect combination of light, focus and timing. luckily that's what the rapid-fire setting is there for, and i was hopeful if i kept clicking away i'd get one that i liked. he saw me crouched over a bucket of water and i explained what i was aiming for, showing him some of my results. impressed with what he saw he waited for me to finish and the tried to achieve the same thing. i had some mixed feelings about that. i have no right to object about someone trying to take the same kind of picture as me, after all i've been guilty of only seeing a shot after someone else has spotted it first. and besides with a shot like this, it's inevitably going to be a different photo each time. i guess i was just a bit insecure that he would end up with a better shot than me. he gave up frustrated after a few minutes and i felt unjustified relief. yeah i know, it's a childish reaction, after all as the saying goes: imitation is the greatest form of plagiarism.
