i love this photo, #27

Madison Street on Sunday Morning © Art Shay

I love this photo by the photographer Art Shay. I saw it recently for the first time, at a lovely party hosted by Milwaukee collectors Carol and Len. They have many beautiful pictures in their home, but I couldn't stop gazing into this one - so much to discover, and amazing composition of both content and graphic elements. It's a street photograph's street photograph. Shay still resides in Chicago, where this photo was taken in 1949.
