Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good. On the last day of the challenge I had nothing interesting shot for it. I headed to meetup hoping there would be someone there in interesting clothes. Sometimes the photography God smiles on you. This gentleman showed up, and I knew I was in business. On the photo walk from a park to downtown, we passed this ramp to the expressway that was close for construction. So, I had an interesting subject and a unique setting. I knew if I couldn't get a good entry, it might be time to hang up the camera.

I was torn as to whether to enter this one or this one:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/19825/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1215887.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/19825/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1215887.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The man is an (aspiring) architect. Only that the lack of socks is pushing him a little in the famous future.
The disappointing thing will be to be told that he just finished shooting for an add
