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.

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.
