A happy face illuminated by a window reflection at Pike Place and 1st Ave. We are having a wonderfully sunny Saturday, and everyone is out and about!

Kim, Great angle on this shot of a classic Pikes Market. The cobblestones lead you right to the subject.

I love the sun bouncing off the cobblestones, too. And the red and white colours {couldn't have asked for more appropriate cars!}. Gorgeous, Kim!

I'm adding my voice to the others. What a satisfying photograph. The angle is inspired. And the look on his sun-bathed face priceless.

Did you lay down in the middle of the intersection? (I am sure folks were wondering what the heck you were doing!) A creative new take on arguably Seattle's most photographed location. Was it just luck to catch the dude smiling in the glare of the reflecting sunshine?

Agree with the others about the angle. The lighting really shows on this guy's face; he looks surreal!

Kris said...

Beautiful composition here. You've exploited the angle excellently!

Thanks much, guys! And no, Anon, I wasn't lying down in the street. I leave that sort of thing to my photo friend Penseroso who often soils his shirt for his amazing shots. Some day I hope to have mastered my camera as he has his. But I do love low level shots and will place the camera on deck or curb or set up my tripod so the lens is very close to the ground. A lot of my photo friends have shot this scene on a rainy night, and the light bleed on the bricks is fantastic. Something fun to try if you are up for it and have a large upbrella!

After I posted this p, photo I realized I may have captured a well known person, although I'm not at all certain. . .if so, it was purely by accident as he just walked into the shot and the light hit him like a spot. No one seems to notice, and that's a good thing.

THis looks like a happy accident but I"m guessing you thought it through and planned that fab angle. Great shot and the light on his face is wonderful.
