Now before you get your shorts in a knot about the ethics of this photo, I have to add quickly that this guy caught my eye not only for his pants and red shorts but for his pose. I think he wanted me to take his picture. While he seemed to notice me raise my camera up to shoot, he looked away and struck an abstracted pose with the cell phone. While some may think this is exploitation, I strongly believe this man wanted to be noticed and you could say was “fair game.” If you haven’t read my about page on the ethics of street photography, you might want to do so to see what I’m taking about.
I was also interested in this shot because of the sculpture to his right. Its shape reflects the man’s stance. I also like the matching shirt and shoes.
As always I would enjoy your comments.
