Facing south

"In front of Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake City, a man stands motionless facing south as the sunsets, Friday, Aug. 6, 2010."

I miss the real city. Salt Lake City isn't much of a city per say, but it does the trick.

Every time I am on foot trekking through the city, I remember how much life and how many characters there are on the streets.

Tonight I was shooting a work related assignment downtown, which is rare. It wasn't that exciting, but after my shoot, with no deadline, I found myself clicking pictures of strangers - Street strangers as I call them.

I am not sure why this ended up being my favorite from the evening.

Other frames I have are in the face of complete randoms. They are, well, closer and had more interesting faces. This is neither.

But this kept catching my eye again in the edit. Maybe it was the fact that I passed this guy on the way to my real assignment and he was still there on my way back?

Nonetheless, I need to spend more time on foot, less time on bicycle and by car, shooting those in my new city.
