This is one of those shots when you must have your camera set to manual. Point the camera to sky and set the exposure. Next return to the subjects... frame and focus on them. The background will be in perfect exposure and the subjects will be under exposed.

Artist Adrian Hayles. The mural features the faces of music luminaries like Ronnie Hawkins and Gordon Lightfoot plus marquees from legendary venues such as Le Coq d’Or and Massey Hall, and the dual neon discs of the famed Sam the Record Man sign.

The mural is meant to capture Yonge Street’s heyday in the ‘50s and ‘60s when stars like B.B. King and Muddy Waters played in clubs along the strip.
