PURE PERFECTION.
This is one of those shots street photographers spend a lifetime trying to add to their port.
Intense focus, the viewers eye is drawn to the combination of light and shadow.
it has a message, bold contrast and perfect timing.
I love that there are people in the background that you can barely see, and that it is only when you have taken in the main focus. You eye can wander and pick out the little details that are there, but you have to look for them.
Hell of a shot.
Hella awesome timing.

Now I have to go hunting on the street for something half as good.
CHEERS!

... I always wonder how many time do you spend to wait these perfect moments..

Sometimes it just happens right away, and some times I wait for a few minutes, but never more than 10. I'm not that patient! :D

wow. You're lucky with timing! :D
Usually when I wait for a shot, in the right perfect moment another person come in camera or something similar XD

This area was good in the sense that it's very crowded and loads of people were walking past. I had a few missed opportunities before I got this one. :D

The use of contrast here couldn't be greater! I love how the cigarette seems part of the person in front of the sign, just because they're both contrasting so much with the white of the sign.
