Between a rock and a hard place
« on: February 17, 2019, 06:26:09 »
This was taken a few years ago in downtown Toronto.
When I came upon this scene the title for the picture immediately came to mind and I grabbed this shot.
Nikon S3 rangefinder
Cosina Voigtlander 25 f4 in Nikon S-mount
Fuji 100 ISO colour slide
probably 5.6 @ 1/125th
I shoot with film. That's film. F...i...l...m. You remember film. It was in all the papers.

Yes - a great shot Robert.  Well seen and presented - I like the way you have focussed on the chair, and left the man's face slightly out of focus to preserve his diginity.

It must be tough to be physically disabled and living on the street.

Fons/Hugh,
Thanks for commenting.
Yes, living on the street is difficult enough for able-bodies folks, and any disabilities whether mental or physical make it even that much more challenging.
