Street Guitar in B & W

Here’s another photo from my Sunday outing with Mauro. This was taken on Queen St. just west of Toronto’s city hall.

    Beautiful tones and very nice composition, furtherly enhaced by the strong perspective.
    I love the position of the guitarist in the frame.
    Nice shot, Dave!

    Something I’ve noticed about you Dave – you really prefer portrait-orientated (vertical) shots over landscape-orientated shots (horizontal). How come? Just curious that’s all.

    I like this shot – another gritty street scene with nice composition. I wonder how it would have composed if in landscape orientation?

      You’ve got a keen eye for detail, Tracy. I’ve noticed that too. Why, I’m not sure. I do like landscape orientation, but for some reason I seem to gravitate to the portrait orientation. It might be partly because I like to include a lot of sky.

        And I’d have to say I’m the opposite – always going for the landscape shots! In my “collection print” of Proj 365 images, I have to include 3 vertical shots on each page. I swear sometimes that is the only reason I remember to shoot veritcal! 🙂

  3. Dave, what an interesting collection of textures, subjects, and perspective. A guitar player–outside SUCH a fence! Where’s the music? Great shot. Oh yeah.

    Tracy: I should really try harder to shoot landscape oriented shots. It’s really the only way to learn landscape composition. I’m going out again tomorrow with Mauro for another photo outing so I think I’ll keep the landscape thing in mind.
