Another day for making the most of the walk across town in the morning sunshine, with the interplay of light and water in City Park being an enduring subject. I certainly needed a slight wind-down moment as a car had crashed into my bus ten minutes earlier - thankfully only the vehicles were damaged.
I set up this sort of shot quite often. What I'm after is some pleasing arrangement of shadows and silhouettes so I just wait for people to walk through shot and take a few frames at apposite moments. The tricky bit this morning was getting something interesting in the foreground - this guy wins out because of his fine shadow, but the middle ground subjects to the right are a bit clustered. Still, this my favourite of what I came up with from a 60 second pause on my way up to work.
Tomorrow promises to be a monster day, as Wednesday's often are. I'm prepared, but in preparing have fallen behind in some other tasks so it looks like I need to put in another few hours tonight. Which will disrupt sleep, which will put me slightly off my game tomorrow... Not a healthy cycle to get into and one which I've been much better at avoiding for the past few years. Hopefully just a temporary blip. Unlike this one, which should last.
