I love your composition with the two silhouettes, and the graphic lines, play of light and shadows, the beautiful B&W ! But where is it ? I did not see this place, I have to return in Toronto ;-))

@Anna Cherer: Thanks very much, Anna. This is Nathan Philips Square at city hall, and that whole area is great for photography and graphic compositions. late morning and early afternoon are best for this kind of shadow play, and I waited patiently for human figures to arrive for scale. It was an added bonus that the cyclist was taking photos of his bike.
Your caption came to mind before I read it . . the two figures really bring this to life !

@Ronnie 2¢: I took several frames before the humans arrived, and this was clearly the only keeper. Thanks, Ronnie.
Nice work on the lines with this B & W where the wheels of the bike create the difference

@Gérard: I loved the bike. It made me want to keep this photo out of several that I took before the people showed up... thanks !

@Ruthiebear: Thanks very much.
OK ! Thank you for your explanations Rick ! I thought that it was maybe in this place but I was not sure, and I saw the works close by that there was already there when I was in Toronto. An other side of this very good place to make photos that you have very well exploited !

@Anna Cherer: If and when you return to Toronto, let me know in advance and I can take you on a downtown "photo tour", like I did for Aminus3 member Ryan Hammond when he visited from Arizona. It was fun!
@Existence Artistique: Merci beaucoup.
Love the lines and the light too...and the shadows that throw up the light !!!!!

Ah, You got the Spotlight, eh? Why am I NOT Surprised!! Getting serious here, but I need to tell you, there is just something about your style and your image work that grabs me and compels my emotions to enjoin the spirit that your images project....Like listening to Coltrane in the middle of a solo, Or Sid Catlett in a drum solo....it GRABS me and doesn't let go...Cheers and congrats my man!
