Those familiar with downtown L.A. would recognize this mural. What's wonderful about street photography is waiting for the scene. I knew the mural made a powerful backdrop. It was a matter of filling the images with people and in the right place(s). Luck also plays an important part. My preference is for busy scenes where the eye can explore several facets within one image. I'm drawn to the people walking along the sidewalk, going about their business. Then I'm directed to the three spaces on the right stacked on top of each other, each providing their own sense of space and activities. There are also many repeating forms throughout the photo.
