    Street scene

    Last Sunday, as I walked in the town center of Setubal I saw this guy and I thought I should make some pictures of him.
    However, my available camera was the G9 and it was a few meters away in the boot of the car.
    I grab the camera and I made these shots.
    The lady just got in the picture saying: "Photograph me, photograph me with him..."

    Thank you Taken.
    As I may have said before, I compose just for feeling.
    This guy is usually in another place of Setubal and I had seen him before always with those glasses. He was covered with mud - yes, MUD - and standing under direct Sun.
    Unfortunatelly I had not the camera in the car.
    I hope I get him before Winter comes...

    My type of pictures....spent lots of time on New York streets but these have a more local market feel....

    The reflection on the glasses intrigued me......I cut it out to see the reflected scene.....I found that by resizing by 500% (adding pixels) I could see the people, but not you the photographer.....was surprised that resizing reveals more detail than just zooming.....

    Good Pictures.....enjoyed....

    Will, I think you can see me in the last picture.

    It is the white spot at the bottom of the right glass.

    I remember I was wearing a white shirt with blue stripes as I usually do.

    Funny idea that one. Crop to 500 %

    Since you have a dull background, you could have reduced depth of fileld and blurred the background to make this guy standout.

    even the croud which has been blurred out would provide a nice colorful background.

    Pictures a nice and colorful
