Photograph by Gregor Pirih, National Geographic Your Shot
A street performer and a picture of Ray Charles meet in a window in the small town of Nova Gorica in western Slovenia, home of Your Shot member Gregor Pirih, who came upon this scene while taking a walk. Pirih stopped and listened for a while before taking out his camera and hunting for the serendipitous angle captured here. He then waited to include a passing woman. “I wanted to have a good street atmosphere [in] my photo,” he writes. “I fired off a few frames, and I knew immediately that I just took the photograph I was hoping for.”
Pirih’s image was published in the Street Photography assignment.
