Lines Through The City

I was fully intending to capture some interesting shadows for today’s shoot, and so headed downtown mid-morning to wander about and experience my surroundings. I had only walked about a block from where I’d parked the car when I found myself pre-visualizing a shot that had no shadows in it at all, but rather a lot of lines and reflections. It was only a few minutes after capturing that shot, when I realized I was mid-composition on another shot that seemed to focus much more on lines than it did on shadows.

An hour later, while consuming one of the best baked tofu sandwiches ever concocted at Carlucci’s Deli, it dawned on me: I had completely abandoned all thought of shadows! My camera was only tuned in to the lines that shape and define my city.
