Just want to leave a note to say that I LOVE your work with shadows and lines - these past couple photos in particular. Thanks for sharing!
Sam, this is one very stunning picture. So many details, so much texture. Not to mention the peculiar lighting on the sidewalk. It seems in exact contrast to the morning light in the east.
one of the most beautiful picture I've seen.
Wow, very nice image, love your black and whites lately!
One of those moments when heaven and earth, humans and light, conspire together to produce strange beauty, and the good photographer is there to see it, capture it, and polish it into an unforgettable image.
