Kyoto shoppers crossing Shijo-dori bridge

Kyoto shoppers crossing Shijo-dori bridge

This shot is part of a series that I took when I was rushing to one of the Kyoto temples. I wanted to get there before the end of the afternoon, the light on that day was so amazing. Waiting for a red light, I noticed the many interesting shadows of the passersby, and ended up spending a good 15 minutes there. This was rush hour (for walkers), so there was not a lot of space to work with on the river bridge.

For me the tiles are as important as the wonderful shadows which tell a lot about the 3 figures. Excellent image - Don.

This kind of light in the late afternoon is so typical for Japan.

This is a really eyecatching quality image, Yves.
It's the composition of an often missed oportunity that makes it stand out from the crowd if you see what I mean, or, in other words - excellent vision !
Superb +V

Really fabulous colors, with a fantastic distorsion of the shadows. Straight out of PIXAR studio!
