A Walk Under a Street Light

I have a love/hate relationship for shots that depend so heavily on the right conditions. They are great when they work well, but they are also about timing. This shot was taken in Alexandria VA right outside of our apartment. My wife picked me up from a meeting on a weekday night, which ended at about 9:30 pm. On my block coming home on a weekday that late, meant you would have a harder time finding parking. It was also a particularly foggy night, which I did not notice until we slowed down to look for an open space. That is when I noticed a man dragging his suitcase across the street in front of the street light. The combination of the fog and his silhouette looked amazing. I promptly told my wife to head inside while I parked the car and expect to take our dog Delilah for a late evening walk. This photo was the result of that request.
