Afternoon light highlighted this window display on the corner of South Royal & Prince Streets in Old Town. I love the play of light and color in this scene.
There’s an old ice house that has been repurposed as an office for an architectural firm in town. It’s a fascinating building (one that I’d love to see the inside of some day), and the door latch isn’t something you see every day. The late afternoon light was hitting it just right when I snapped this photo.
Sometimes the light is so good you can’t believe your luck. Other times, the light stinks and you need to create your own luck. For the latter, I usually carry around a small flash.
But in the photograph above, the sun provided all the luck I would need. This musician was standing right on the edge of some great late afternoon golden light. The sun was at the perfect angle to create interesting shadows and reveal texture in the wall.
It was almost as if the violinist positioned himself perfectly for a photograph, but I’m sure he was just trying to fend off the fall chill.
