Another shot from my session with Damien Demolder yesterday - but not a set-up this time. I saw this cleaner walking along with his dustpan and brush and thought he had a very interesting profile.
They say a picture paints a thousand words but so far very few of mine have. Everyone interprets a picture in their own way but for me this one is all about inaccessibility. A cleaner's salary is unlikely to allow for shopping in Armani (neither does mine!) and I think the pillar's position on the 'path' and the line in front of the man both act as visual blocks in his way.
I would be very interested in knowing what it says to you, if anything, I may be reading more into it than there is.
Damien certainly gave us a lot of food for thought yesterday, as did the speaker at our camera club last Monday, ironically also a street photographer. I think I have a clearer idea of what to look for now - just need to get out and about more.
Many thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's offering and particularly to Moira (Mrswoolybill) for her very kind User Award.
