The "Street Observations" Photo Blog featuring street photography and observations from photographer John Fraissinet. (Now in its 7th Year).
Being a jaded New Yorker, I had no interest as to what these two were so fascinated with. But the fascination itself was interesting. Now, as I review the shot in retrospect, I am a bit puzzled as there is really nothing up in this direction. Maybe some building tips, or a plane and the sky, but nothing that should inspire such a keen interest from these tourists. Of course, since I didn't look, I don't know that for a fact. But, I'll be damned if I'll look up just because some tourists are looking up.
In the street photography practice of backdrop with variations, that is finding a nice background and then waiting for the actors to enter the scene. Here is an example.

Like most shots, there is an improvement when you add a focal point. This is generally a person for my street shots. The red shoes and the reflection add some pop.
Then there is the black and white alternative.
