Henri cartier Bresson

A photo of everyday life by Henri Cartier Bresson. This photo attracts the eyes to the rider by the composition of the surrounding geometrical cityscape. The lines draws and points attention to the rider, and shows a unique moment of this unsuspecting person's daily life.

I like this photo because of its unique many shades and textures that help make the surroundings distinct. All the while having the railings in-focus and distinct, this photo manages to point and show the main subject in the background. Due to lines and shapes that compliment the rule of thirds, the riders movement (creating a slight blur) attracts attention very well.
