Thank you Eric! It was great to be up on the rooftop here, to get a very different perspective on the area. Cheers.
Winnipeg Street: Gord
I took this candid shot of Gord as I walked back to work after lunch. I spotted him standing in this shadowy corner and thought the light was excellent. I was tempted to put the camera into B&W mode, but instead felt the colours would be quite nice. I’m really enjoying shooting with Leica lenses in colour – I find they are really true and have a wonderful quality. Well, I suppose this could just be my eyes seeing what they want to see! :) The two shots below give you all an idea where I go shooting to capture many of my street portraits and other shots. This area is one of the older districts in the city with many historic registered buildings. A great place for wandering about and taking pictures.
Drawn to the middle shot here, Mike. The colors, angles, shadows, lights, reflections — an amalgem that yields alive and vibrant.
