A Waterfront Field Trip (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

  I can't count the number of times I have walked past this wharf, and not seen its possibilities.

As I was walking back from the waterfront, I saw this street musician; I asked him if I could make a portrait of him, and he said "Yes", and promptly dropped his head, and stayed that way. Made on my little Sony NEX-5 with a 50mm f/1.8 lens, I am really impressed with the richness and detail of the image.

I so strongly prefer to work with soft light that I sometimes forget how wonderful it is to work with direct sunlight, especially with richly textured subjects.
