Lines and circles... basic geometric shapes. A street crossing is made up of them. The evenly spaced lines to define a crosswalk. The circles of the manhole cover.

On this particular day of picture taking, the bright sun created strong shadows that defined a particular crosswalk. I was especially attracted to the manhole cover. I focused on it and watched the silhouettes pass. They weren't people, the bright light in my faces didn't make that possible, they were silhouettes.

I waited, and isolated the legs and shadows of the silhouettes as they moved through the geometry of the crossing.
