While trying to capture the patterns of an empty street, a lucky moment crossed through photographer Retel Tulio's frame.
"Streets without cars are unusual and interesting in my opinion. And as I was sitting on a bench I noticed that for brief moments there were gaps between the traffic and the zebras looked really nice in the backlight," Tulio explained.
Shooting through a tree-shaped bicycle rack on Ocean Boulevard in Santa Monica, Tulio focused on the road and the paint's geometry, the layers of intersectioning streets and the distant silhouettes. Unexpectedly, a surfer walked into the shot, and Tulio captured the moment.
