Spotlight - Urban

I've posted this picture before and I also use this image on my business cards. More recently I had this image matted and framed for a silent auction prize. I must say, it looks good framed and I might just have to buy an arm's length of prize tickets so I can win it back.

I love the composition of this image but am also drawn to it emotionally. As you can see, it is taken on Main Street (in Winnipeg). Thoughts of friendship mingle with the soulful voice of Holly Cole as I remember that evening with gratitude and fondness.

(after I posted this, I noticed Main Street made it into today's Etsy Finds!)

  1. I have to tell you that I'm a big fan of your photos, but this is one of the few (or only one?) that I don't like. I get that the blur is supposed to be somewhat mysterious and intriguing, but I find it distracting, and it's so blurry that I can't make much out. I really can't see what would draw anyone to this picture. When I look at it, I can't wait to look away. What is the draw to it?

  2. For me it is the movement. It makes me think of the fast paced life in most urban locations. Sometimes life can move so fast it is a blur...like this shot.
