I feel the same as Tanya! Excellent photo! I like the way the word "Los" sits at the edge of the photo. Cool!

This would make a great bus stop outdoor ad for a certain mp3 player.

It's a beauty.

I see faces in the marble, too. Super. I had to Stumble.

I feel like I got lucky with this shot.

Yeah, really great. So urban. The black and white fits just right.

Maybe a little luck, maybe some timing. But I'm beginning to learn that you also have to see what's there as a photo before you shoot it, and that's artistic skill.

The photo was lucky but I did set up for the shot before. I found the background first, then waited for about five minutes, taking multiple shots of people walking past the LA Times building. I took about four frames of this girl.

Well done, and worth it. Even if your good shot came quickly, you still had to do the set-up, right?

The thought of it reminds me of this from Eric at Paris Daily Photo.
