Sunday stroll

This is streetphotography as I like it: when everything falls in to their right place in a picture.

A sunny day in Venice, Italy. It had rained the night before, but the street is slowly drying in the winter sun. I was concentrating on a nice composition of the shadow the lamp post made along the street and over the wall. When along came 'the missing link' and in an instant I knew I needed to have the man in the picture too. I got one shot to get the picture right.....

Usually I am not for pictures where 'the horizon' is not straight, but here I think it adds to the image with all the other lines, straight and angled, playing their part in the whole.
