Picture This #230 ~ People

Congratulations to Randall for his close up image of the leave fronds. I love the sharpness of the water droplet.

I chose three images from my trip to Philadelphia for this theme. I have included several photos from that trip in other posts. My trip here was the first attempt to photograph people as subjects.

My first image is a window scene. I motioned to the man inside if I could snap this shot. He agreed.
I don't know if his is the best Italian food in Philly. I found people willing to be photographed.

We continued walking on South Street and we came across this group of people in an alley. They were painting the walls blue.

We were sitting in a park across from the cathedral. It was Memorial Day and it was warm. Families were gathered here and their kids were enjoying the fountain.

  1. Hi Robert, great people pictures! I love the reflections in your top picture. Philadelphia sure has some great Italian food. The middle picture is my favorite, terrific colors and composition. Kids and fountains always make for lively pictures and and interesting shots. I can almost hear the squeals of delight.

  2. Hi Robert!! Three very good shots for this week's theme. I like the first one best, because it has layers and depth. Not only the man, but the writing on the window and the reflections of across the street. I really like the colours they are using in the second shot, although they seem to be getting as much on the floor as on the walls!! Kids love playing in water, you've captured the fun they were having here nicely :-))

    1. Thanks, Mitch. I was pleased that the man allowed me to take that shot. Maybe he saw it as a boost for his restaurant. I was pleased how the composition turned out. I had to pause when we walked by this alley and saw what these people were doing. There is a community effort to embellish the buildings closer to the Magic Gardens. The kids were enjoying themselves in the fountain.
