" Walking Tall " (accidental street shot!)

Hi guys! : )

 

As I was centering the above 'mushroom' structure to try and capture a mix of old & new architecture in this district, a guy walked across my view at a close distance to my camera.

After viewing the photo later, it looked to me as if he was very tall in comparison to the buildings & other people in the shot!

 

Made me think of those old Godzilla movies (where they created small buildings & structures to make the 'man in a suit' look larger!).

This guy is also moving directly towards a building with a 'Monster' sign on it, which made me think of those old giant-monster films even more ; )

 

He comes off as a giant here! Just look at those tiny bicycles and other very small people around his feet area!

 

I'd like to dedicate this photo to some street shooters I currenly follow:

(If I left anyone out, message me and I'll gladly add you!))

  

I don't consider myself a good street shooter in comparison to them, but I do find a lot of their work very inspiring!

  

Again, this was supposed to be a capture of old & new architecture but instead turned into a 'people street shot'!

 

Hope my nature loving friends aren't bothered too much by this 'city shot'... I'll resume nature shooting soon ; )

 

Street photography is not an area I'm good at but I'd still like to share this one with my friends here : )

 

(( note: this photo was taken with a compact camera ))

I do read every single comment and appreciate them greatly! *

  

Thanks guys!

Hope you enjoy : )
