The Art Of The Deal, Philadelphia Street Photography

The Art Of The Deal, Philadelphia Street Photography

Is this the handshake of a deal crafted on the street, or just two old friends meeting up for some fine wining and dining?

This photo was taken outside the Palm Restaurant at The Bellevue Hotel, Philadelphia, PA. While it appears I took this photo in some official capacity (it almost looks staged) I can assure you I was simply passing by when I snapped this single shot. I was just walking down Broad Street when I saw a crowd of people ahead, and it looked like I might have a few photographic subjects, I wasn’t wrong. So the only question that remained, would I get “the shot”?

I think this photograph could have been snapped 10 years ago or 50 years ago. I like capturing photos that have a timeless quality. And while this might not be the most deeply emotive street photograph, I love that it’s such a candid shot, it doesn’t seem possible it was taken by someone simply strolling through. I will admit that much luck in timing was involved in getting this shot. That’s usually how it works with street photography.
