Colours in Union Square


my first shot from a short holiday in New York, I'm having a fantastic time after crazy exams season !

About this shot: I spotted this man as I walked around the Union Square area; but he was in quite a cramped space so I put aside the thought of taking a shot of him on the sidewalk. After going in and out of a couple of shops, I saw him inside the square, and thought it was a great chance to take the shot. By this time, he seemed in a better and more comfortable position, with his cushion placed underneath his bottom and his boots off.

I walked around the Square and came back to discover that he was walking, furiously searching through the dustbins for cigarette butts - I followed from a distance to try and get a photo with his face in it without aggravating him. I eventually got one, but it doesn't tell as much of a story as this.

I quite like this, no post-processing.

I have no words really. This is why I had to ask you the question on twitter. You have the same effect you're going for here with the color, as you did with the others in B&W. And it's funny, but I wonder if this picture would have had the same effect it does if it was in B&W.
'Kayode Adegbola: hmmm we might never know, or maybe we will smile
