I didn’t do a whole lot of street photography this time in San Francisco, but I snuck some in. I spent a few minutes by myself, exploring the Ferry Terminal and noticed this scene at a food counter.
After all these years of photography, I’ve probably developed a “style”, though I may not be the best person to recognize it. I know that I prefer to frame precisely and often exactly perpendicular to the subject. This most likely came from my urban landscapes and architecture, which is how I started with my more serious photography.
Precision and street photography often doesn’t mesh, especially since capturing a fleeting moment on the street takes a lot of speed and minimal setup. But sometimes, I get to combine symmetry, balance, and precision, like in today’s photo. The couple is centered in frame, the cook is center between them and the horizontal lines are parallel to the bottom frame.
