Where: San Fransisco, CA
I’m always looking for new ways to illustrate the hilly streets of San Fransisco.
The grade of the street in front of me pushed the painted letters of STOP up towards camera. It was interesting but not enough to make it a real picture so I waited for people to walk by for some scale.
And with people the scene was not still not that interesting until a couple with a small child made their way across the street. The Father bent down to help the child with the curb and that gesture turned the scene into a meaningful picture. That gesture also created a bonus, with the incongruous TOP due to his body blocking the S.
