Sunday morning, early, is the time when there are the least amount of people around on the street, so its a good time to get out and shoot some set ups. My initial destination this morning was this phone booth where i was going for a superman/rapture kinda thing. I think it needed alot more textile, like if the booth was a foot or two deep with discarded clothing.
And you'll recall my neighbourhood street dweller, Didier. Here's a shot i took of his encampment back in September.
With this in mind i thought i would try something similar on a bench. I think this one really works.
i saw this today in the metro. i was hoping to try something like this but am concerned about security. I was in the north part of the city yesterday when the metro was shut down due to a suspicious package. I'd hate to get busted for suspect clothes.
Here's a slightly closer in shot of the bench. I think the wider angle works slightly better, and conveys more of a sense of a bodily presence. Plus the beer can was a nice touch.
