Sunday......walking the streets of Philadelphia around 11am in the Rittenhouse Square section on 18th Street and stumbled upon this nice little shot. My initial thinking was to take a shot of the lady way down there with her two dogs. But it was a 'canned' shot with her posing and lacked the true character of street photography. There was 'no smell' of the street within those photo's.
But here, this lovely couple who were out just to enjoy the slightly sunny day and a bite to eat. The sun around this couple told me that this was a good shot, this had character....one could smell the ham and eggs! I loved the backdrop of the image as it tails off with tables upon tables, all steering away from the couple. And then, slightly unseen is the image of the man eating inside appearing in in back of the coule at the table.
A nice image, just poking thru. Lovely shot.....great contrast. Yet more importantly as I like to see in many photos, one can 'smell the street'.
