Lines, Legs and Heels. BY Christian Stops

The story around this shot is actually somewhat unusual. I had scouted this location with the stripes on the ground like I always do and was thinking about possible angles and POVs always considering how people usually walk there. when I saw this lady and her high heels out of the corner of my eye. I’m not normally one to quickly respond to a situation and possible opportunity on the street. This was the exception. I put myself into position as fast as I could and just barely got her legs and heels into the frame without a real opportunity to frame a meaningful composition or even think about the placement of anything. I thought the shot wasn’t probably working out so I spent at least another 45 minutes in this location shooting dozens more pictures with various legs and shoes in different strides. It wasn’t until I was looking through my images back home on the computer that I realized I could have ended that shoot right after that first photo because it was clearly the winner out of all the shots I took there. But hey…what are you gonna do? It’s like they say, hindsight has 20/20!

  1. The stark contrast between the solid black of the elegantly shod legs…moving quickly along …and the static, striped, grainy tiles is brilliant.
    There’s something stealthy about the shot… as though the person is trying to get away! This is a fantastic street capture … with a mysteriois narrative!
