The Man In The Street

The Man In The Street ©2018 Karen Johnson All Rights Reserved

I was in Manhattan yesterday and did a little street photography in the rain.  The background of this image was taken with my IPhone X shooting straight down onto the street.  It was a corner in SoHo with a pedestrian walkway and a lot of red and white colors swirling around it.  It really popped in the rain.  All I could think of was an abstract painting.  I decided to bring in a vintage image I colorized and obtained online through the Metropolitan Museumof Art’s Open Access program.  I used gradients to fade the man into the street.  I liked the combination of the vintage image with this modern abstract background.
