Default It's Been Weeks

It's been weeks since I have been on the streets shooting. So it was refreshing to take my camera on my walk downtown this morning - and capture some real life in Guatemala:

That doesn't look like street photography at all. More like shopped, dressed, composed and lit for an ad or movie. Well spotted.

And of course TIMING is everything as well. An hour after taking this pic, I walked home past the same place. The job is almost complete. Only the man on the ladder - all the interesting stuff on the street is gone and the door is closed up. Turns out the man was putting in an electric meter grooved into the wall and was now at the top of the roof hooking up the wires. Not nearly as interesting.

Thank you. As soon as I looked at the image on the camera screen, I knew I had captured a mood.
