From a vantage point over Nathan Phillips Square, we looked down on the people as they passed by.   It was late in the afternoon so the shadows were long.    Although we were looking for interesting characters, we were also creating compositions with people, concrete lines,  and shadows as elements.

 

Three photographs are shooting from behind a low concrete wall.  One has his camera aimed downwards towards the people walking below.  The others have their cameras aimed farther out.

Most of the picture is of shadows on the concrete below.  There are partial shadows of the arches over the fountain at nathan phillips square.  There are also 4 people (or parts of the people) and the long shadows that they cast.

A man is sitting at a table outside, on Nathan Phillips Square, late afternoon, with long shadows making patterns on the concrete

Some shadows kept still so they were easier to capture.

Not all involved shadows.  Sometimes, just people in the shadow.
