People Watching

I took this photo in San Francisco earlier this year. At first I just thought the man sitting and looking out of the window would make an interesting photograph with the strong reflections in the window. After noticing the woman walking up the hill I set up the shot so that having her in the corner balanced out the image.
The white wall behind the woman simplifies that side of the image in contrast to the business of the left side. Also the strange and varied light throughout the frame gives the photo some depth.
Overall I was happy to capture a simple but interesting slice of everyday life.
