I have said before that pictures are more interesting when they keep you guessing.
Today I had five minutes to do a few street shots, before an appointment with a friend and client on Toronto’s Victoria Street. So I used those five minutes to take a few snaps at Yonge and Dundas Square in Toronto:
Oh, I do love street photography, and I do love the new GF-1 that allows me to snap away unobtrusively.
did you shoot b/w because of the time of day, or just playing around with the setting.
I prefer Black and White for what happens in streets, is all.
After all your recent post on the GF1 I think it’s time to retire my G7. And you should ask Pana for sponsorship.
But it would lessen my independence! 🙂
Michael, Wow, this post makes me miss Toronto, my home-away-from-home. I really like the picture of the girl/woman with her hand over the water; impact-full!
I was wondering, because my memory is failing, in the picture of the 3 women crossing the street, you framed them in what looks like an a acute angle, but isn’t that really a 90 degree angle crosswalk? If so, is that a function of wide-angle lens? Anyway, in the long run, it doesn’t matter because it really draws you into the shot.
Hi Danté: That crosswalk, at the all-new Yonge-Dundas square, is at an oblique angle. I always look for angles. 🙂
