Sometimes, the expected transforms into something magical via photography. As a photographer, chasing light and understanding the nuances of light during different times of day becomes something of an obsession. Appreciating how the sunlight can transform an ordinary street scene into a magically illuminated landscape is something I never take for granted.
In this scene, for example, fire escapes catch the sun's gleam, as if they are staircases propelling dreams skyward. And as the trees bow in the glow of the sun, they seem to beckon wanderers into the scene to share in the late afternoon glow and warmth spilling onto the street below.
