    • Thanks. I almost threw this one away until I noticed how the chiaroscuro lighting played into the “share your sunshine” theme. πŸ˜€

  2. Excellent work. Definitely an example of when color adds to a street photograph.

    • Thanks. Interesting mix of yellows and oranges which a painter like Barbara – ‘Holycowgirl,’ below – might like to comment on. I actually thought it kind of garish at first and tried to correct the white balance, but it wouldn’t budge. πŸ™‚

  3. I’m wondering how long that cheery window stays unbroken! A bit of ironic DMV-Nazi humor here, yes?, not unlike “Work Will Set You Free” on the Auschwitz gate. Or is St Pete some twilight zone where everyone loves the government ?

    • Hmnn, interesting ‘twilight zone’ question. About a year ago I received a parking ticket and when I went to pay it online, it said if it was my first ticket, which it was, then it was dismissed as a courtesy and I owed nothing! πŸ™‚

  4. Love all the flow and action moving forward (a la HAP Peralta?) … everything simply ties in … coincidence that you mention “parking ticket forgiveness” and the window indicates that this is where you pay your parking tickets. Hmmm … is he going to smile and pay or punch out some poor clerk? Guess we’ll never know.
