Louisville 2013 – On the phone

This was shot with a long lens (300 mm; f5.6; 1/1000; ISO 640) looking down about 30 degrees from the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts in Louisville, KY. There was a great shadow across the street late in the day. Around 5 pm people started leaving work and crossed the street. Fortunately for me they J-walked across the street right toward me and not at the traffic light. I shot several continuous frames hoping to get the lady just as she crossed into the sunlight. The contrast was so strong I thought a black and white conversion would work. I love the sunglasses. They protect her identity.
