Reader photo: City explored

Photographers, on the whole, are an inquisitive, exploring type of group. When left to their own devices -- namely, a camera and an endless amount of time -- most will wander around looking for hidden pockets of light or interesting alleyways, previously unknown to the photographer. All in search for something new and (hopefully) a great image.

Susan Catherine Weber seems to be no different, taking this photo in Downtown Los Angeles.

"While walking around the fashion district, I came across an alley that had very small shops and lots of people mulling about," wrote Weber in an email. "The light was nice and he just happened to be standing there.  He looked at me the instant I snapped the photo.  And that was it.  We never spoke and we both went along our separate ways."

Weber took the photo with her Fujifilm X100.
