Casting Her Shadow in Roy Square

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Casting Her Shadow in Roy Square
Casting Her Shadow in Roy Square
Roy Square is a small, alley enclave just behind one of Toronto's main intersections and main subway transfer points, Bloor and Yonge. I was taking pictures of the roof to sidewalk murals covering the buildings on one side of the square when a yound woman passed by, casting her shadow in the square. I snapped the picture as she was passing. Available light, shutter speed 1/290, aperture f/6.7.

Gerda,

Love this image! Good catch! I might like it even more if the person on the back were not there. Anyways, like it as it is now. Good luck on the final!

Another congrats, Gerda! Beautiful capture of urban art...with an extra element! Those two windows seem like eyes to me.

Thank you very much, Monika and Dolores. Monika, I wish I could take credit for the timing, but I'm afraid it was mostly luck! Dolores, you're right about the windows looking like eyes! I hadn't thought of it, but now that you mentioned it, I took another look--and yes, they really do!

This really is a fabulous image. It has an almost 1940's cartoon aura about it.

Thank you so much, Kay! I'm delighted you enjoyed it. I was reading in the paper recently that some developers are planning to demolish this charming little area to put up some huge skyscraper. I hope it doesn't happen, but I'm not very optimistic about it.
