Story behind the photograph
There are a number of places I have noticed some time ago as potentially good spots for portrait style photography with fairly dramatic light. One of them is the corner of Martin Place and Pitt Street. However, the place is very rarely “occupied”. There are a lot of pedestrians around but none in the open sections of the Post Office building.
Today I was in luck. This man was positioned perfectly of centre and with his face in the light. He also had an interesting face. As you can see from the eye contact he has seen me taking his photograph and yet he did not turn around or change his pose. I hope his all important phone call brought good news.
