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!
