This street photography was taken at my bus stop on my way to work. I saw this guy's stance his pose so upright and facing against the direction of everyone else waiting at the bus stop. So decide to snap this intriguing scene. Also following my series of painterly style images and that iPhone's flattening of the depth I used it to my composition as if framing a portrait from days of old. I deliberately chose an oval framing (which is challenging) as it draws our eyes to a different symmetry and one third rule that divides the spaces more inward. Hence elevating this mundane scene as if you were peeping in.
