His body language appears to be saying he wishes his path was a little better lighted and a little more populated. The two short traffic pillars also give it the eerie illusion that his is walking through an urban cemetery....
(maybe its the camera man in the shadows he is reacting to?) - Nicely seen!
You are right, Paul, he looks hesitant to enter the shadow! An urban cemetery? Interesting idea. I think that in the old part of the city like this one, I am sure we could find 10 old cemeteries. I don't think he had seen me yet, or at least I couldn't notice any fear on his face
... into the dark. Last chance for this guy to turn around and stick to the brighter things in life. But I bet he didn't. So he disappeared, nameless, unprepared - and your shot remains the only memory of him.
Beautiful contrasts. And a nice capture of this solo performance.
