Another of my street photography shots from the weekend. This one took about 5 to 10 minutes to get a combination of passer-by and the scrolling message intersecting with the word WAIT. My intention being to try to tell the story that the sign may somehow be shouting WAIT to a passing pedestrian. It was actually the girl about to light a cigarette that I spotted and the sign was trying to stop her but when I loaded it up in Lightroom I think it was the smiling girl who became the subject of the signs amore. Maybe you see a different story, let me know.
Once again this was shot from the hip, I framed the sign with a jaunty angle to heighten the feeling of movement and drama and all I had to do was hold the camera steady while watching potential subjects coming up the street. The sign was in my peripheral vision so I could time the shot without even looking at the camera. I did a couple of test shots to make sure the framing and placement worked and then waited for the right passer-by at just the right moment.
Hope you enjoy the photo, let me know what you think.
