"The shadow proves the sunshine." -Jon Foreman of Switchfoot.
When I found this vantage point, I knew that I was about to take some good photos. If I had taken these pictures at almost any other time in the day, your eye wouldn't have been drawn to the elongated shadows cast by the anonymous citizens. In photography, viewing the subject in a different light can lead to wonderful images. Similarly, in life, viewing a person or situation in a fresh, exquisite light can help change your attitude towards that person or situation. Attitude spawns from the choice of an individual, and is not directly derived from the situations which that individual has been subjected to.
