Photograph: “Street story” by Gabi Ben Avraham (username “Gabi Ben avraham” on Flickr).

Originally shared on the Photofocus Flickr community right here.

Why I picked this image: 

This image captured by Gabi is an absolute street photography gem! A little girl is visible as a silhouette walking her bright white dog while apparently interacting with her family (my assumption), that is only visible as shadows on the wall. The hand gesture of the fathers’ shadow apparently looking at his daughter with the dog, while she is looking at the direction of his shadow, gives this image a magic and surreal touch of interaction on different layers.

The leading lines of the wall framed the shadows just right and in a perfect size and relation to each other. As a little extra bonus, the graffiti face on the wall appears to look around the father’s shoulder shadow for another layer of interaction.

This is really an absolutely outstanding street photo Gabi!
