A perfect coincidence...
Creativity and intelligence at work, not to mention a excellent photographer! Wonderful work with great light, shadow and overall composition. Thanks for sharing and congrats, congrats, congrats.
Thank you very much everyone and to National Geographic. This is an honor to me. Not only because its Nat Geo, but I have very fond memories of spending hours looking at my late grandmother's vast Nat Geo collection from the early 1900's up until she passed by. Every time I see a Nat Geo magazine or special I'm reminded of her. I wish she could have been alive to see me featured. Thank you.
With the arrow of light, the passerby fits what is written on the wall. It is as if everything was just for him in that moment.
What a perfect black and white shot .The 'arrow' lighting up the wall,and the huge letters,'As to be in plain sight' are appropriate to the passerby who is caught in stride by the photographer. Makes for another 'wait for it' shot, that very definately pays off. The details are amazing, and I just love it, Jason. j.e.s.......
@Frank JENSEN Actually, I leave my photo's untitled. Nat Geo gave the title for the post.
I was referring to the beam of light in my last reply.
@Shannon T Everything's natural and out of camera, save the B&W processing. The "beam" is created due to a skyway that goes over the street between two buildings. I was across the street (not seen in frame) when I took this.
