On Emerald Streets again

While in Seattle for business earlier this week, I had a couple hours to spend walking around as the evening light was coming down. I've been using the Ricoh GRD a lot lately, an excellent little machine ideal for use on the street. It's about as big as my iPhone, has the quality of a DSLR and has full manual controls, something you don't usually find in a pocket camera.

I've been really trying to shoot on the edge of the light this summer, looking for scenes where the setting sun and reflected light off of surrounding buildings creates beams that illuminate the people as they walk through, but blow out the backgrounds, creating great shadows.
