My luckiest photoshot

I was at the Stage Door of Vienna State Opera on May 31, 1998. A wonderful performance of Meyerbeer's Le Prophète was over. Plácido Domingo was Jean and Agnes Baltsa was Fidès, Jean's mother. Viktoria Loukianetz was Berthe, Jean's fiancée. And then Plácido came out. No digital camera at that time. I just checked briefly at what height I should have the camera to get it in face height and then I just took a photo without looking to check if Placido was there and I got this great photo. Actually the only photo in the whole pack that was anything.

And it is my best photo ever. It was just luck and chance. Viva Plácido!
