Scott Kelby Photowalk 2013

During the past weekend I had the opportunity to participate in the 2013 version of the Scott Kelby Photowalk.  This is an annual walk that happens in Sofia and around the world.  The purpose of the walk is to meet new people, share ideas, take some photos and have a good day.  You can submit photos from the walk into a worldwide contest or you can just forward them to your walk leader to share on the their Flickr page.  Either way this experience is a great chance to meet new people while getting out and taking photos. A link to the photowalk page is below.

Above is an image that I am submitting to the contest.  It was taken in the market off of Vitosha Blvd. just across from the mosque in Sofia, Bulgaria.  I like this image due to the fact that your eye is drawn to the different people placed within a relatively symmetrical setting.  The people almost seem to create a small amount of tension or unevenness within the symmetrical frame. 

In order to create this photo I took advice that I had heard at some point that told me both to work a scene but also wait for the right time and moment to take the photo.  I sat at the bottom of the stairs for 10 minutes waiting for the right combination of events and people to appear.  Comments and critique are welcome.  Enjoy!
