I was up in a parking garage the other day and saw this angle. The set up was : two brick walls on each side and they where a couple of stops darker than the background. Then the shadow at the bottom coming across. Im using the shape as a design element. Then of corse the poles sticking up. And waited for the subject to come through the "layout". Just using the elements of design.

I was walking down Redue street and saw this man with this great face. I ask him If I could photograph him. I saw this great light in a corner and ask him to move over into it. I talk to him for a while. Then when he brought the cigarette up to his mouth and shot.

Trying some new post production. 33 r, 33g, 33 b, vignette 45, clarity 5-10 contrast 5-15
And if there is bright sun under expose by half stop to hole stop. Shoot on P mode.
 I think I like things a lot more contrasty. Or more grungy.

I waited just as the women was leaving the light going into the shade. I like the design of the frame and the shadow hitting the ground.

This guy walk right underneath me. He had his sun glasses on top of his head. Camera left there starting construction on something new unfortunately. I hope what ever they make it's interesting to look at. In the downtown area in Ottawa all they do is poor slab and it's grey and not very 
interesting to look at. I suppose it's the cheapest way to build. But it is Canada's capital.
