Immokalee


In Immokalee I spotted a bored man in a white shirt and another in a red shirt sitting on steps  The symmetry and the tedium appealed to me.  Then I saw a man in a  red shirt on a bicycle, two blocks away.  I waited for him to enter the scene and get to a spot that balanced the first red-shirted man.
I clicked the shutter.  It isn't a flashy image, just a simple glimpse of ordinary life, but I liked it.

On the first day of the New Year, City Daily Photo bloggers show their best (or favorite) photograph of the previous year.  I showed this photo in January 2014.  Other CDP bloggers are
showing their own "Photo of the Year" here.

Bob Crowe said...

I like it a lot, too. It's got visual tension, those two sedentary men but also those angles pulling your eye all over the place. Well done.
